MetadataShow full item record
A handmade birthday card with an illustration of an oriole. The front reads "Spring your birthday, I carry spring and your birthday to you". Inside is a handwritten calendar for January 1925 and a poem called "The Oriole". The poem reads "It is a pretty Oriole, That builds her hanging nest, Then lays her lovely little eggs, That lie beneath her breast. And when the little ones hatch out, Their hanging bed will swing, And while the mother feeds her young, The father bird will sing. O what a pity it would be, To kill the little birds, Because 't would bring them misery, Too great for any words."
