Manny’s birthday book – March 28

March 28, 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.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  March 28th – Danny K—.

Lily of the Valley, very fair to see,

Sweet and dear to all I’ve loved, ever dear to me.

Flower, pure and fragrant when you begin your reign,

Visions of a glad lost time will ever come again.

Danny  is my uncle – Manny’s youngest child, born when she was a year younger than I am now.  Manny had eight babies (one of them, Susan Beverley, stillborn) over a period of 20 years.  The handwriting on his entry belongs to on of his sisters.
