Found poetry: April 15, 1940

April 15-16, 1940

Rained in night
snowed this morning
chicken for dinner
baked biscuits for supper
shortened the sleeves on
Will’s new gray shirt
put buttons on his suit
ripped my old black coat in
hopes of enough for a topper
and put black flowers
on my new hat

April 15-16, 1940

    • Brenda, how wonderful to hear from you! Yes, the connection of women and women’s work through time is powerful for me, too. I am struck by how much of Hattie’s day was spent making do and getting by in creative ways and almost always with grace and humor. Warm regards to you, as well.
