Manny’s birthday book – 26th January

January 26, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for ChildrenMy grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

January 26th:  Luke Jonathon  1974.

Sitting by the fireside, thinking of the past,

Of the time long faded now, far too bright to last;

Waiting patiently and still, for the end to come,

Looking – with what wistful eyes! – for the last long home.

Luke is another of Manny’s grandchildren, ninth, I believe.  That is her handwriting.
