Postcard collecting is my hobby
I shall not be bored.
It maketh me do research on faraway places.
It causeth me to correspond with strange people.
It keepeth me alert.

It leadeth me into the new areas of knowledge
for curiosity's sake.
Yea, though I am house bound by miserable weather,
I will fear no boredom, for my cards are with me.

Their beauty and their history enchant me.
they show me a pleasant escape
from the tensions of everyday life.
They fill my shelves with shoe boxes,
My checking account runneth lower.

Surely, their beauty and information shall surround me
all the days of my life,
and I will be listed in the ranks of deltiologists forever.
