"THE HEAVENLY TOWN by Alma Martin - 
A heavenly town is Provincetown, 
Its streets go winding up and down,
Way-down-along, way-up-along,
With laughter, mirthful jest and song.
Dark Portuguese
From far-off seas
Their ships in bay
Pass time of day
With Friends who wander up and down
The pleasant streets of Provincetown.
"Hello!" the friendly children call
To high and low, to great and small. 
Bright blossoms gaily nod their heads,
Strong zinnias, yellow, purples, reds,
Gay marigolds and hollyhocks
Whose hues are matched by artists' smocks."

The postcard is used and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips.
