More lines from a thank you note…

Thanks also for buttermilk biscuits
the kind now extinct since mother moved away
for Fannie Emory who taught mom to cook
thanks for granny Greer who helped me be less afraid
and Betty Greer who taught me ‘kick the can’
thanks for every song in ‘my fair lady’
for leaving on a troop ship from Bremerhaven
and for sailing past the statue of liberty
thanks for the alley behind my childhood church
for when i went to Illinois
with Uncle Charlie

Many thanks
