Old Fashioned Remedy

She qualified more years ago than many people want to know. In fact it was before the War; (we’re talking now about the Boer.) Her methods haven’t changed a lot, since Granny Smith was just a tot and still she carries, all the time, some tansy, hyssop and a lime. Her gentle touch, a word or two will keep us from our Waterloo. And if we suffer stress or strain she'll calm us down and then explain, "A little rum will ease the pain!" ~

    Amusing and cute. I like the flow of this piece and the rhythm. I can just see Granny Smith and her rum cure.
