A sweet card from a sweet illustration—it's from Thomas Burke's Children in Verse (1913), crafted by Honor Appleton, portrays the nursery rhyme characters Wynkin, Blinkin, and Nod. They toss a fishing net from their wooden shoe boat while basking in the glow of a smiling full moon. This timeless poem by Eugene Field is dreamily rendered as the trio fills their nets with stars.
