Andrew Calvin Walker - Poem

Andrew Calvin Walkeroffsite link to WorldConnect was a doctor in Norma and elsewhere. The poem below was found in his effects belonging to his son Ruby and then Ruby's son Robert and appears to be something that Andrew wrote.

Bill Newport was the foreman at Norcross Lumber Company, and Lucretia was his wife; they did, in fact, have a daughter Reeda born 21 March 1914. Bill Long was a lumber inspector, one of the higher-level jobs at Norcross; his mother was a Newport, so the two were likely related. He and his wife Flora had a son Warren Ralph Long born 21 March 1920.

The deep Snows may fall, The March winds
may roar through the mountain tops or
the vallies low, The night Owls may
echo their shrill cry from peak to peak
The Balmy Spring Days may cause
the Buds and Blooms to sent forth their
fragrance in the air, & awake all
sleeping Nature. The piercing whistles
from the various Saw-mills at & around
Norma may sound calling hundreds
of People to their daily labor, but Bill
Newport says, "By Gorrah, Lucretia it's a
Girl" On the same date 21, the Stork left
a fine Boy at Bill Longs. Well, yes,
the Doctors all like the Bills, anyways.
