A Little Girl Long Ago

When my house was built, a long time ago, a different little girl walked on these floors.  That little gigirl long agorl wore long dresses and black boots with a row of buttons.  She had a bonnet that she wore outside, and I have a baseball cap.

When my house was built, people in the North were fighting people in the South.  The little girl who lived here back then might have been scared.  The little girl’s Father might have been gone for a long time, fighting with other men.

When my house was new, the kitchen was warm and cheery, just like it is now.  The first family to use our kitchen made stew on the stove and so does my mom.  Many times, this kitchen has smelled like onions and many little girls got teary eyes and sniffy noses.

If you are a book publisher or literary agent, it would be my pleasure to share the entirety of this story with you.  Please do not hesitate to contact me.
