I buried my first womern
In the spring; and in the fall

And hain’t settled yit at all! –
Fer I’m allus thinkin’ – thinkin’

And a-makin’ up rag carpets,

A-drappin’ corn, and keepin’

Reddin’ up around the house;

Er a-drivin’ up the cows, –
And there she lays out yander
By the lower medder fence,
Where the cows was barely grazin’,
And they’re usin’ ever sence.

Say it’s when the clover’s ripe,
And I’m settin’, in the evenin’,
On the porch here, with my pipe,
And the other’n hollers “Henry!” –
W’y they ain’t no sadder thing
Than to think of my first womern
And her funeral last spring

Granddaughter
Has asked all winter
‘Bout lizards.

So we looked.
High, spending the night
Six lizards!

The photograph is mine, taken of a lizard decoration on
the front of the house, under the porch, with a lizard
like those we saw last night.
