My Nana said when he was born
the nurses gave him to her
and told her to take him home to pass.
She and her aunt put him in a shoe box by the stove
They fed him with an eye dropper.
He is 86 today.
The photographer Anne Geddes has always taken
lovely photos of babies
This story about one of "her babies"
Reminded me of
and my Nana
and how precious life is.
