Manny’s birthday book – April 5

April 5, 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:  April 5th – Melva

Daffodils grow in the meadows,

Scenting the April air;

Daffodils out in the garden,-

I’m glad I have them there.

I don’t know who Melva is.  There were 17 Melva’s born in Western Australia between 1910 and 1912.  None of them have a surname I recognise, either from family surnames or from this book.
If you think you know who this Melva is, please comment and let me know.
