This is a Story

This is a story about a girl
born during the Great Depression
the 11th child of
a worn-out mother and
dirt-farmer father
She had red flannel
diapers and
dark curly hair
She was afraid of
horses and snakes
She was a
little snoop-
she found out everybody’s business
She had a niece who was
only a few months older
She would go into town with
her dad to sell farm goods, going door to door
She knew before all the others
that her mom was sick but
nobody believed her
She was sneaky and kept some thingsd secret
from her mom
When she was little she didn’t know
they were poor
