I don't come across old St. Patrick's Day postcards very often - but these three are sweet and wistful.
"Tho' far from home
Thy children roam
Our hearts can never stray.
Here's love to thee
Dear Old Countree,
On this St. Patrick's Day!"
They say a horse shoe
brings Good Luck,
To those with Bad Luck troubled,
I'm sending TWO to-day, that you
May find your Good Luck DOUBLED.
The Maid of Erin
Erin Go Bragh
COME BACK TO ERIN
Come back to Erin Mavourneen, Mavourneen, Come back Aroonto the land of my birth: Come with the shamrocks and Springtime Mavourneen, And its Killarney shall ring with our mirth. Sure when we left ye to beautiful England, Little we thought of the lone winter days, Little we thought of the hush of the starshine Over the Mountain and bluffs and the brays! Then come back to Erin Mavourneen, Mavourneen, Come back again to the land of my birth - Come back Mavourneen, Mavourneen And its killarney shall ring with our mirth.
