Wealth

Jennifer Habel

Spring 2019

Had a present of some green knit gloves  
Had a declamation entitled our glorious dead

Had visitors
Had griddle cakes

Had a nap which refreshed me muchly 

Had a gay time, a nice time
Had a firstrate time and good deal of fun over my curls 

Had plenty of time to think
and build air castles for the future

Had visitors, had shortcake
(Had rather be alone)
