Amanuensis Monday - Grandma Hill's Poetry, Week 31

There was a man who had a little cow
And the cow had a wee short tail.
Each morn and evening, even until now
They milk the milk in a large pail.

He has two girls who own a cat with spots on her back
And of this milk, they never allow her to lack.

For every Mickey Mouse she’d spy, running to and fro.

Nancy Jane Wiley Hill (1875-1960) was always writing something.  Many of those poems are now in the possession of her granddaughter Shirley Kern.  Shirley, with the help of her sister-in-law Ruth Ormsby, transcribed these poems in 1996 for a Hill-Ormsby-Kern family reunion.  I am going to post many of these poems so that they may be enjoyed by all.

These are copyright 1996 and reprinted with permission.
