Two little boys

A lazy post because I can say nothing at all about this card.  I have no idea what it says.  Any out there who can read Chinese?

It does remind me of the song made popular by Rolf Harris:
Two little boys had two little toys
Each had a wooden horse
Gaily they played each summer's day
Warriors both of course
I hadn't realised that the song dates right back to 1902, written by Americans Theodore Morse and Edward Madden.  It was revived by Rolf Harris, became a huge hit for him and later Margaret Thatcher named it as a favourite song.

  1. What great artwork! It would make a great t-shirt design, no doubt and cause many double takes from others. Sometimes the simplest postcards are the most amusing.

  2. I can't read it either, but I think it' so beautiful - and very amusing too.

  3. Can't help with the translation but I love the illustration:-)

  4. They look like two little warriors at play. Wonderful card even though we have no idea what it actually says.

  5. Though I certainly live in an area with many Chinese and other Asian ethnicities, the languages are nothing I recognize!!! I love the art, though.

  6. @Brian, an example of less is more, no doubt. :)
    @Christine, I love it too.
    @Re, hi!
    @jabblog, that seems to be the way it's going. :)
    @Lauren, I don't suppose it does matter really that we don't know.
    @Carmen, I think I've run out of options now. :)

    I thought someone, somewhere, would be able to read it. Where are the spammers when you need them? :)

  7. Digga-ligga-ligga-lum! Vit de extrwa leg, digga-ligga-ligga-lum.........


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
