Girls Together

Two faces smile at me

Side by side

Dorothy one hundred years

Evie only nine

Great grandma and great grandchild

Smash the years between

And Alwyn on the sideboard framed

Looking on serene


The years have run for Dorothy

A century all told

A lovely gentle Yorkshire girl

Safe now from the cold

And Evie starting out in life

A smile to steal your heart

Great grandma great grandchild

This is how we start


We do not come from nowhere

We have a noble line

Of people who have loved us

Time again and time

Held within their loving arms

Sent into the world

Old and young together

In family love we’re furled
