GOOD OLD SUMMERTIME
The lady’s name is Henrietta. She is from Iowa, where the tall corn grows.
She is happy: she is a dancer by the riverside or at the beach. She is wearing a red dress.
She is feeling lovely and romantic: something satisfying! She is enjoying being in the sun outside.
There is a man standing behind her. She knows him and he is taking pictures. There is an apartment building behind the beach. Krista and her husband and ten children live there. Krista works 25 jobs. (!!)
The air smells like sand. You can drink the salty beach water: it’s refreshing! There’s fish in the water to eat.
Music is coming from behind the photographer. It is old time waltz music. There is also a lady laying in the sand with an umbrella in her hand, feeling romantic.
Henrietta works hard at home. She is a single lady on her own. She sews sack clothes and dish towels.
I had a sister named Henrietta, says Gloria.
Henrietta flie to the beach with her magic wings that flop out and she can flop them back in! Her favorite thing about having wings is that she can fly. The hardest thing about having wings is that she can hit people with them.
Henrietta is thinking of her lover Honeybee. “Come here, I miss you,” she says. They met at the dance the other night. The first thing she said to him was “What is your name? My name is Lullabell. Your name is Honeybee! We would make a cute couple! Let’s go off in the horse and carriage to Alaska.”
Lulabell and Honeybee have fur coats and underwear. They love the snow and there is LOTS of snow there.
They are going to have 10 children. There will be people that will donate and help them out: We should send the popcorn machine because they do need help!
Their ten kids are named: Puckalilly – Pookalilly - Hookalilly – Lukalilly – Billalilly – Normalilly – Warenalilly – Allenalilly – Danalilly - Lynnalilly
They will live in Anchorage in snow houses.
