Today's window

From "The Peter Patter Book of Nursery Rhymes" by Leroy F. JacksonIllustrator: Blanche Fisher Wright

Pretty poppies,

Pretty trees,
Pretty little lettuce-leaves,
Pretty pebbles,
Red and brown,
Pretty floating thistle-down.
Pretty baby,
Curly head,
Standing in a pansy-bed,
Pretty clouds
All white and curled—
O the great, big pretty world!

There are surprisingly many windows in book illustrations, sometimes just as a decorative background rather than describing the text.
