From the 1943 Mar-Ken Primary & Junior High School Annual:
Doreen O’Neill wrote the following for the Annual First/Second Grade Section:
I Like Everything.
I like the trees,
I like the bees,
I like the flowers,
And pretty bowers.
I like the gentle falling rain,
I like the stars that shine so bright
I like the moon with silvery light.
I like the birds that sing each day
In the lovely month of May.
I like God’s love
From heaven above,
For all Mar-Ken’s girls and boys.
Guess What I Am.
I am big,
I have a short tail.
I can carry logs.
I have no hands.
One part of me is the name of something you put clothes in.
