Author Gayle Newby will be doing a book signing at the Ripley Library on Saturday, March 3 from 10:00AM – 12:00PM
Sleeping in that cold water flat, far from her treasured countryside,
If there was money for fire she might have brewed a cup of tea, reflecting;
Melded hearts are hard to come by.
Could be, those churning thoughts of frigid farmwives,
May be she did not dwell on her poverty, her father’s early death, her tragic family’s end.
