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?
