For Lucy...L.M.Montgomery, because as long as there are Annes and Emilys we will never grow fully old;-)

 o-o-o-o-o! I wonder what this google-doodle is for, I said to Victoria when I turned on the computer this morning. Victoria laughed at my squeal of delight:)


In spite of, or because of much hardship in Lucy Maud Montgomery's personal life she left behind much joy for generations to come,
 to dream and delight in.
Thank-you, Lucy

For winsome worlds you let to page
Of girls, for girls, from age to age
To shed a little tear, to laugh
As we traverse a paragraph
Becoming Anne, Pat, Emily
We walk a world of poetry
Where once upon a time you took
A dream and made a storybook
To read on summer-winter’s eve
To revel in the make-believe
Of words woven into the art
Of being ever young at heart
…and mothers become girls a while
Or Marilla, touched by a child
-ish vision of faith undeterred
Then captured by the will of word
To be a happy hand-me-down
For girls never quite fully-grown

Here are some of the books I own, written by her...
It's true, what C.S. Lewis said,

“No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally (and often far more) worth reading at the age of fifty.”
— C.S. Lewis
have you read any of her books lately?
