In a strange reversal of roles, the living haunt the dead!

Would you be willing to part with this poem?

Michael Popek said...

I'd have to find it first :)

Oh, I hope you find it. Annie Denman was my great-great-aunt. My great-grandmother's older sister. I have several of her letters and poems, but nothing in print. I know it's not worth anything, but I sure would like to have it. Aunt Annie was blind but used a typewriter to write to my great-grandmother almost every week. She was the 7th born of 11 children. In 1926 she began teaching at the Mississippi School for the Blind. Such a fun find, Michael! Thank you for sharing it with the world!:-)

I'm writing a blog about Annie. Can I please link to this blog post?

Michael Popek said...

Of course - and I'm still looking for it.
