When the postman has forgotten to ring twice

"Eight o'clock;
The postman's knock!
Five letters for Papa;
  One for Lou,
  And none for you,
And three for dear Mamma."

(Ch.G. Rossetti in Sing-song: a nursery rhyme book)

Mailboxes longing for messages


“Writing letter
A forgotten art
Only used for
Business act.

Letters written
Recorded memories
Always remained
For generations.

Will those days
Ever come back? 
Will the mailbox
Smile again?”

(T. Chandrupatla in Mailbox today)

Waiting for your letters on different numbers

“I got a letter on a lonesome day
It was from her ship a-sailin’
Saying I don’t know when I’ll be comin’ back again
It depends on how I’m a-feelin’”

(Bob Dylan in Boots of Spanish leather)

It is denied the Gods –“

A desperate letterbox

A desperate letterbox

“Going to him! Happy letter! Tell him —
Tell him the page I didn’t write;
Tell him I only said the syntax,
And left the verb and the pronoun out.”

(E. Dickinson in The letter)
