Legend of Florida's "Sand Dollar"

Dublin Core

Title

Legend of Florida's "Sand Dollar"

Description

The postcard features two sand dollars at both corners of the card and includes several facts about the sand dollar.

This postcard displays an illustrative /poetic text overlaying a bright red background. The text appears to be written on an elementary grade level and describes specific moments in time that is important to the author. In addition, there is also two artistic unknown images colored in yellow, which I presumed, are flowers. (N.S.)

Legend of Florida's "Sand Dollar"

Written on this little sea shell
There is a beautiful story
About the birth and death of Jesus
In all its wondrous glory

His wounds were five
And if you look closely here
You'll see four from the nails
One from a Roman's Spear

There is also the Easter Lily
And in its center a star
One to remind us of His resurrection
The other of shepherds from afar

Also during that season
We speak of Good Will and Peace
So if you will break open the center
Five doves will you release

Now turn the dollar over
And here on the other side
A reminder of His nativity
The Poinsettia, sign of the Yuletide

God gave us this little symbol
To remind us of His Son
And to understand His Gospel
Until our earthly days are done

Archivist's Comment

I wasn't entirely sure about how to order the stanzas while I was inputting them, it wasn't clear which came before the other when it came to the last 3-4 verses. I ended up inputting them from left to right, but I am not sure if it is correct. - SAD 9/29/15

N.S. 11/16/2015
- Previous archivist didn't add any subjects to postcard, therefore, I added (flower and art).
- Checked for errors
- Added personal description
