To a Mouse Card

Regular price £3.50

From the wonderful Keyhole Collection by The Passenger Press based in Glasgow. 

Keyhole Collection cards bring art and history together in hand-crafted letterpress greetings cards which are bold and beautiful, thought-provoking and tactile. Every card gives a new lease of life to images that have been tucked away in archives, museums, library’s and special collections. They show images that may be of small or great importance. Images that give a glimpse of the past with a quirky, contemporary edge.

Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie, 

O, what a panic's in thy breastie!

Thou need na start awa sae hasty,

Wi' bickering brattle!

I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee, 

Wi' murd'ring pattle!

 

I'm truly sorry man's dominion, 

Has broken nature's social union, 

An' justifies that ill opinion,

Which makes thee startle

At me, thy poor, earth-born companion,

An' fellow-mortal! 

An excerpt from To a Mouse by Robert Burns
