ODE TO HANNAH MAY
A girl was born, on a bright sunny day, we came to know as Hannah May.
Most girls played with dolls and toys, but Hannah played in the woods like on of the boys.
A young man named Slim, who worked at the dairy, was the one Hannah set her sights to marry.
They raised three kids; two girls and a boy. Though times were tough, they brought them great joy.
They worked the Balsams and made it shine, not leaving them with much free time.
They made the Balsams a magical place, the dwarfs and the wildlife putting a smile on your face.
Hannah wasn't much for cooking and sewing, spent most of her time fishing and bowling.
Her fishing buddy was named Ceel/ the fish they caught Slim made into a meal.
Bingo became part of her life. Slim often wondered, "Do I still have a wife?"
Then it was baseball watched side by side. The bets were a-flying, and the Tigers were a-dying.
The rest of her time she spent a-knitting, to keep socks and mittens on her grand kids a-fitting.
So, "Breaker, Breaker for the Rainbow" once more. We'll remember you forever more.
