Poems by a Texas Flower free pdf I was born in the hill country in a small town in Texas. My mother was Dutch/French and my father was French. My mother was a very Christian lady and brought me up to love the Lord and to go to church each time the doors opened.

I felt like the country mouse moving to the city. Things were better on farm and my life was more comfortable. The children enrolled in vacation bible school each summer where they would learn to paint-by-numbers. I would dabble with the paint they did not use and I fell in love with the colors as they could be mixed and become something that I had never seen. My work at the sewing factory was very monotonous and repetitive so I would find myself composing poems in my mind to keep from falling asleep at the sewing machine.
