Manny’s birthday book – July 29

July 29, 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:  July 29 – Jocelyn

This girl has got the baby, I hope she will take care;

I think she might forget it – forget that it is there;

She wears so large a bonnet, that she really cannot see;

And she might drop the baby, and then how sad ‘twould be.

Another charming Kate Greenaway original verse for children!

Jocelyn is one of Manny’s grandchildren.
