Title

Countryside with Flowers and Poem

Description

In the foreground is a red brick wall and purple flowers. A path weaves through an opening in the wall to the background of the card, which depicts fields of grass with houses dotting the hills. There is an inset of a man's head and shoulders in the upper left. To the right, a poem that reads "Come dear old comrade you and I / Will steal an hour from days gone by / The lusty days of long ago / When you were Bill and I was Joe / Oliver Wendell Holmes".
