old text

I was hoping to find some interesting words on a wall or funny sign this week but I still had not found anything when Taylor came home carrying this book that she found at an abandoned house. The cover was torn and the pages tattered and stained and falling out, but it was beautiful - a book filled with poems about friendship and old fashioned floral paintings and pen and ink drawings - published in 1961. While she was scanning the floral paintings I took the inside cover and first page of the book and photographed it. Can you read it?


  1. What a great find! And yes, I could read it if I clicked on the photograph. They just don't write them like that anymore...not enough angst for contemporary poetry! lol

    This is such a treasure.

  2. oh such treasure!! I love the print and the way you laid it out...

  3. Don't you just love it when things like this happen. I love you layout and setting. Great job.

  4. what a wonderful find i love treasures like that
