Di's Magical Mystery Trunk

Di and her prize antique trunk from the days of Broadway Plays and Stage. This trunk was once used by 'Louise Robinson' a stage performer in the Famous 'Ziegfeld Follies'. This was an era of true stage performers.  There entire lives were in these trunks which they carried with them eveywhere they traveled, by ship or by train.

Ziegfeld Follies:

See all about theater of yesteryear!
What eventually became known as vaudeville had its origins in minstrel shows, concert-saloons, and beer gardens. Unlike the minstrel show, which appealed to broad audiences of both sexes, early variety or vaudeville was designed for men only. The name "vaudeville" largely replaced variety by the 1890s, but the word "variety" continued to be used as a synonym throughout the period covered by this collection. Both terms referred to a program constructed from separate acts of several different types.

lori pen pal 20 cent stamp from www.lori.fm

To paper and pen I have taken
to write a many a word,
and in my heart I have staken
this chance with unspoken and unheard

A friendship and trust develops
and like family we become,
the loving true feelings envelops
and the inner soul has to surrcomb.

But then without a warning, not even a whisper heard,
the shouts cry out when given a chance in spoken word for now to phone line communication we have fallen, thinking all written should have been more spoken.

The sadness creeps in like a thief in the night
to steal away what was such a beautiful light
and we fond of paper and pen now sit wondering why,
what happened and can we regain Pen Pal Fantasy
when and if we try?
