Charles Rowley, the step-son of Beatrice Rowley (“R. H. Grenville”), has shared with us a number of letters and cards containing poetry written for the family by his step-mother. The author has kindly given us permission to publish any of her poems and photos that Charles has provided for us. This previously published poem was sent in a card dated 26 July 2007, accompanied by a photo of Beatrice Rowley taken at her 90th birthday celebration, 10 July 2007 (her birthday is 9 July).
