Conf
 idenc

Inside:

Confidences

Two yellow chicks
  Happy little pair
Crept into a flower-pot
  And made a dwelling there.

There they chirp and chatter,
  There they bill and coo,
Never fret and quarrel
  Like other people do.

But though their little hearts are fond
  Their love is not more true,
Than all the wishes of my heart
  That here I send to you!
      F.E. Weatherly

Designed in England. Printed in Germany.
