Postcard of the Day

"Message Week" here at Postcard of the Day is thanks to amw.  Thanks, amw!

ETA:  Lady Mary Jane apparently refers to a poem of one Nathalia Crane, with these lines:

   "I linger on the flathouse roof, the moonlight is divine,
    But my heart is all a-flutter like the washing on the line."


But wait!  There's more!

AND Nathalia was a child prodigy--- she was 10 when that poem came out. The full text of her book, Janitor's Boy,: and other poems, is available here.

(I like to think Lady Mary Jane was a-flutter over Mrs. Arnold back in Brooklyn, m'self.)
