MY MOTHER'S GARDEN
So fitting is the following poem,
by Alice E. Allen, expressing fully
and beautifully "the fragrance of her
life" that we print it in lieu of an
editorial as a tribute of esteem to
May Turnage Moore, wboee passing
was recorded as of April 20, 1940:
Her heart is like her garden.
Old-fashioned, quaint and sweet,
With here a wealth of blossoms,
And there a. still retreat.
Sweet violets are hiding,
We know as we pass by,
And lilies, pure as angel thoughts,
Are opening somewhere nigh.
Forget-me-nots there linger,
In full perfection brought.
And there bloom purple pansies
In many a tender thought
There love's own roses blossom,
As from enchanted ground,
And lavish perfume exquisite
The whole glad year around.
And in that quiet garden?
The garden of her "heart?
Songbirds are always singing
Their songs of cheer apart i
And from it floats forever,
O'ereoming sin and strife,
Sweet as the breath of roaes blown,
The fragrance of her life
WE ARE GLAD
la reviewmg the twenty
his life, which the Bee. C. B.
bum gave to Farmville, cheerfully
"spending' sod bring spent" for the
good of this community, we know that
we express the feeling of our people
in saying "thou hast done great
things for us, whereof we axe glad."
