Tuesday Post: Le malheureux facteur (the unfortunate postman)

french-postman-postcard-and-stamp

I found this lovely postcard of an unfortunate postman losing his mail in a windstorm on Pinterest, then traced an original copy to Delcampe.    And then I found that it was made into a mini-sheet in 2015…  Be still my beating heart!

The poem translates as follows:

The Obsession of the Postman
Good gracious, it is raining postcards!
Everyone is an amateur!
They endlessly dance infernally around,
Around the unfortunate postman!
