Mademoiselle

Dreaming
Of snail mail
A package
With gummies
Licorice
And the
Best Belgian chocolate
A postcard from
Amalfi
That takes
Me to Le Sirenuse
A letter dipped
In lavender
That says
Provence
Is at hand
And No.5
That reminds
Me Of
Mademoiselle
Coco

  8. Great writing.
    As a former "snail mail" employee (retired), I still love receiving letters and even "junk mail" great for doing craft projects 🌷

  13. OH! YES! When I was young it was the only way to get communication, no phones, just waiting for the postman to call. I LOVE your poem, it brings back wonderful memories AND the smell of the perfumes too.

  14. Great poem and a great way to communicate letters and remember the blue air mail letters I used to send to my brother in Australia and birthday cards in the mail much better than wishes over the internet -I woulld settle for the chocolate lol

  25. This poem just take me to my dreams. Provence has been a dream place for me in the past few years, hopefully I can still see it but for now, your writings took me there in a whip of air :)

  28. Snail mail is wonderful - especially when there are scents associated with us that transport us to other parts of the world.
    Stay safe
