Children of Kathleen and Carl Greenville Lawrence Jr.

Narrative

     Among my mother's (Kathleen) effects I found a poem entitled "A Babe (in your arms)." It is in her handwriting and I have always assume she wrote it probably shortly after the birth of her first child, my sister Jessie. In 2005, on a visit to my sister's she gave me a stenographers note book8 that had belonged to our mother. In it appeared to be her notes on shorthand. Our mother may have been studying shorthand perhaps to work as a stenographer. The entire front side of each page will filled with shorthand exercises and notes. When you turn the note book over and read from the back, the back of those pages, after a few pages of additional shorthand notes, contained what appeared to be writings by our mother. She had written several poems of which only one was date, December 7, 1931, which would be about three years after the birth of my sister. In addition to the poems she had written a short story about Tabby the purple stuffed kitty cat. This was found in loose pages stuck inside the note book.

     I have transcribed those writings below beginning with the poem that I found among my mother's belongings that I had acquired. At first I thought it may have been the first one that she wrote and that it was written shortly after the birth of my sister. However, as I read the poem closely it could have well been the last one she wrote and was written after my birth about eight and a half years after my sister's birth. I suspect this due to two lines in the poem, "Two eyes of blue, a match for the skies above" and "A round little head, covered with soft golden down," as I was a very blond, blue-eyed child whereas my sister's hair and eyes were somewhat darker. This was probably why the poem was among the things I received and the note book found it's way to my sister.

A Babe
(in your arms)


Ten little fingers and ten little toes
The least little bit of a button nose
Two eyes of blue, a match for the skies above
A dear little body to cuddle and love
A round little head, covered with soft golden down
A smile, a cry, a wee frown
Two dimpled arms, 'round your neck to cling tight
Someone who makes life and living seem right
All these together and a million more charms
You'll find in the joy of a babe in your arms


     I'm assuming the poems were written in the sequence found in the note book. This first poem found had two versions, what I have called a first draft and a final draft. This was the only one that was dated, December 7, 1931, and was titled "Xmas in Town."

Xmas in Town (this appears to be a first draft)

Many songs are sung, many stories told
Of Christmases spent in the country cold
Of rides on the sleighs behind horses fleet
Wraped in warm blankets from head to feet

But my story's one of Yule Tide in town
With hustle and bustle of crowds all ‘roun'
Shops filled to the top with Xmas cheer
Folks hurry and scurry every where

There's toys for the kiddies small
Who think Xmas day the very best of all
There's presents for brother, sister and Dad
And a big surprise to make Mother glad

There are fruits and nuts and cakes so sweet
Everything found there to make Xmas a treat
What with cranberry sauce and turkey big
You eat all day ‘till you can't hold a fig

And the houses are in one long row
From the window of each, are lights a glow
Then stomping? and pattering of little feet
As they rush the tree for their Xmas treat.

I've heard it said each to his own taste
The world is made so, to save any waste
Each to his own, then no one will frown
I guess I'll spend Xmas this year in town

Xmas in Town (this appears to be the final draft)

Many songs are sun, many stories told
Of Christmases spent in the country cold
Of rides on the sleigh behind horses fleet
All wrapped in warm furs from head to feet

(2)
But my story's one of yule tide in town
With hustle and bustle of crowds all ‘roun'
Shops filled to the top with Christmas cheer
Folks hurrying and scurring everywhere

(3)
Nights all lit up with lights red and green
Which throw o'er the sheets a glamorous sheen
Windows are packed with toys to delight
The children who find it fairyland bright

(4)
There are books and candies for kiddies small
Who think Christmas Day's the best of all
There are presents for brother, sis and Dad
And a big surprise to make mother glad

(5)
There are fruits and nuts and cookies so sweet
Everything needed to make Christmas a treat
What with turkey, cake and cranberry sauce
When it comes to dinner you'ss find no loss

(6)
And the houses all stand in one long row
From the windows and doors lights shine a glow
There's stamping and stomping of dear little feet
As they rush the tree for their Christmas treat

(7)
I've heard it said, "Each to his own taste"
The world is made thus, to save any waste
So each to his own, then no one will frown
For me, I'll spend Chrismas each year in town

Kathleen Lawrence
Dec. 7, 1931


     Next was the following untitled poem:

Untitled

Each night someone climbs upon my knee
And with accents sweet she lisps to me

"Tell me mommy what make the lights shine so.
When they all go out say where do they go
When I get great big can I climb that tree
And shake down lots of thos pecans for me
If I drink my milk to get real fat
Can I go to school where Bob-Bob's at
If I be real good & not even frown
Will you buy me something when you're in town
Do you know what I want Santa to bring
Can I see him if I am the bested thing
If I close both my eyes and sleep real tight
Will you wake me when Daddy comes tonight"

Each night some climbs upon my knee
And in accents sweet she lisps to me.


     The final poem is titled "Life." There were four drafts of the same poem and I have included all four drafts here so one can see the development process of the poem over time.

First draft

As I stood on the threshold of Life's dawning
With my face turned toward the sun
On tiptoes eager for the beginning
Of the race that was mine to run
The world seemed a place to be gay in
And the days only made for my fun
No thought for the morrow giving me
Or the time when my stay here would be done

But Live is not all sunshine and pleasure
Some sorrow with joys must be mixed
I find with each sweet comes the bitter
And can only take it as it is fixed
Still I can only search for life's treasure
Of its mystery in awe stand transfixed
And live to the full of my measure
With love, laughter, and tears tho its mixed

Tho with love, laughter and tears it is mixed

Life (second draft)

(1)
As I stood on the threshold of Life's morning;
With my face turned toward the sun;
On tiptoes, eager for the beginning
Of the race that was mine to run;
The world seemed a place to be gay in
And the days only made for my fun
No thought, for the morrow giving
Or the time when it all should be done

(2)
But Life cannot all be of sunshine and pleasure,
For without sorrow the joy is missed
We find, with each sweet the bitter
And the path we must travel is fixed
Still always we'll search for Life's treasure
Of its mystery, in awe stand transfixed
We must be the fullest of our measure
For with love and with laughter the tears are mixed

Life (third draft)

(1)
I stood on the threshold of Life's dawning
With my face turned toward the shining sun
On tiptoes, eager for beginning
The great race that only could be run
The world seemed just a place to be gay in
Days were only made for playing and fun
No thought for the morrow ever giving
Or the time when the last should be done

(2)
But all Life cannot be sunshire and pleasure
Without some sorrow joy is missed
We find with each sweet the bitter
And the path which travel is fixed
Still always we will search for Life's treasure
Of its mystery in awe stand transfixed
And live to the full our measure
For with love, laughter and tears it will be mixed

Life (final draft)

(1)
I stood on the threshold of life's morning
With my face turned to the bright shining sun
On tiptoes eager for the beginning
Of that wonderful race I alone could run
The world seemed just a place to be gay in
Days were made for laughter and for fun
Not a thought for the morrow was ever given
Or the time when a last deed would be done

(2)
But all Life cannot be sunshine and pleasure
Without some sorrow Life's greatest joys are missed
We will find with every sweet mingled the bitter
For the path you and I must travel is fixed
Still always we will search for life's rare treasure
Or its deep mystery in awe stand transfixed
So let us live to the fullest our measure
Thus through the love and the laughter tears are mixed


     Finally, the short story found on loose pages in the note pad about the adventures of Tabby. This story specifically mentions my sister Jessie Lou.

The Adventures of Tabby
The Purple, Stuffed Kitty

Tabby was a little purple, stuffed Kitty Cat. A very unusual color for a Kitty, my dears, but then Tabby was a very unusual Kitty.

She had belonged to her little mistress, Jessie Lou, every since Xmas morning; when Jessie Lou found her blinking wisely up from underneath the lowest branches of the Xmas tree – as if to say "Now wasn't Ole Santa good to leave you such a nice Kitty." Jessie Lou thought so too and every night Tabby must go to bed with her.

They soon grew very fond of one another and had great times together.

One fine spring morning Jessie Lou went to visit her grandma and left Tabby at home, napping on the floor. The sun came in through the window on Tabby and presently becoming too warm she awoke, stretched her self and got up.

She walked all over the house looking for her little playmate but Jessie Lou was nowhere around. She walked to the screen-door thinking Jessie might be in the yard, and finding a hole in the screen slipped through.

Now it was Tabby's very first trip out-of-doors all alone. So feeling rather proud of herself she began to explore. She went first this way then that, sticking her little purple nose into everything in sight.

After a while she made her way to the chicken house and was digging underneath an old plank when out jumped the biggest mouse Tabby had ever seen; it was nearly as large as Tabby herself and blinked up at poor Tabby with the most wicked black eyes! Tabby didn't wait for a second look but turned and ran as fast as her little stuffed legs would take her and hid under a rose bush; where she lay so quiet she hardly breathed.

As time passed and she saw nothing more of the large mouse she finally creeped from beneath the rose bush & peered all around. Seeing nothing further to frighten her she started across the yard.

She had just gone about half-way across when she spied a little birdie, hop, hopping about looking for crumbs. Now Tabby did just what any other kitty would have done. She gave one leap expecting to catch the birdie in her little purple paws, there was a rush of wings and wasn't Tabby surprised when she landed on nothing at all – that is nothing but the warm earth and green grass. The little birdie was perched on the limb of a nearby tree laughing at foolish looking Tabby.

Feeling as though she had had enough excitement for a while, Tabby looked around for a nice quiet place to take a "Cat Nap." She found a big bunch of tall grass and curled up right in the middle of it. Soon she was dreaming of all the nice things little kittys like. Just as she was about to pounce upon an unusually fat little mouse – a great noise woke her. She jumped up with a start and there before her very eyes was Blackie, the bow-wow doggie that lived next door. Tabby was a brave little kitty but being only a little purple stuffed kitty cat, she neither teeth nor claws with which to defend herself. There was nothing Tabby could do but run so she went passed Blackie, the bow-wow doggie, in a little purple streak and never stopped till she was back in the house where she dropped all out of breath under the window.

Soon Jessie Lou came home from her visit and there she found Tabby, just as she had left her, fast asleep underneath the window. And as little purple stuffed kitty cats can't talk, Jessie Lou to this day knows nothing of Tabby's adventures that fine spring morning.
