A Little Visitor




I spied her in my garden;


Clasped tightly in each hand,


She held a monstrous posy;


Her dimpled cheeks were rosy;


She smiled and begged my pardon


When near her I did stand.


"I've come to pay a visit,"


She said - the pretty dear!-


"For thirty long days, sir;


And aren't you glad I'm here?"


"Now, what may be your name, please?"


I gently did demand:


"And whose are all these flowers?"


She said "Why, they are ours!"


"I'm June. Last night I came please,


Straight from the Summer Land."

"Blessed by the Lord God of Israel,


For He has visited us and accomplished redemption for His people"


Luke 1:68

Hello again!

Sorry about the funny signature :)~Ken is my husband. I guess he must've done a post on his blog and I didn't think to check before posting! Audrey has caught me using the girls' signature, too.

I found the poem in a book of eBay called "Little Folks Speaker", which must be an earlier version of your book. It's so old and brittle that when we turn the pages they crack. I have to take it to a printer's to see if they can make a copy of it somehow.
Those old books are just precious, aren't they?

Love,

Marqueta
