While I'm in my family posting mode - I have one very special treat - This one is written by my late great-grandmother, for her daughter, my Nana..... It's the only one of her works I can find - But I'm looking real hard for some more....
by Alice K. Martin (1878-1967)
When I have left this mortal shore
And mosey 'round the earth no more,
Don't cry, don't weep, don't sob ~
I may have struck a better job.
Don't go and buy a large bouquet
For which you find it hard to pay.
If you have roses, well, bless your soul
Just pin one in my button-hole
While I am here and well today.
Don't wait until I've gone away.
