Little Boy Blue

One of the people I mentioned in the last blog was my Granny Luddy who used to visit us and share my bedroom with me. She would teach me prayers and would tell me "old fashioned" poems and stories.

Only a few hours ago I went to our post box and found a letter to me from my Mum in Ireland. In it was an old piece of paper on which my Granny had written out a poem she used to tell me many years ago, "Little Boy Blue" by Eugene Field

If you click on the picture you will see a larger version of it. It gives me goosebumps to look at the old paper and know that it was written so long ago and yet landed in my hands at a time I had been thinking about her.
