Manny’s birthday book – April 27

April 27, 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 27 – Frank Greer Kirwan

Just an entrance, nothing more;

Whither, whither does it go?-

Where glad hearts are gay and light,

Or where they ache in silent woe?

In his own distinctive handwriting, my grandfather (Manny’s husband – or perhaps when he wrote it, future husband) has written Frank Greer Kirwan 1908. Underneath, one of my aunties has written: died July 21st 1983.

If you would like to read more about him, I have written a post in the ‘On this day…’ series on Frank Greer Kirwan, for his birthday.
