Birthday Party For  Mrs. Bonnie Hudgins-Bowman

I know a lady unlike any other

She is Nanny Bonnie, my great grandmother.

I remember my summers when I was a child

Staying with Nanny Bonnie, was exciting and wild.

Growing up in the city, far from my roots

Left me bewildered when I stepped in her boots.

She can do so many things, she knows how to live

All those old wives tales used to make me laugh

But they really do work, Ive tried at least half.

And hearing her stories of the days of old

Are my priceless memories that can never be sold.

She truly is wonderful, she is queen of our tree

And Im a proud leaf descending from Nanny Bonnie.

I love you Nanny Bonnie, Happy Birthday~ Love, Elena
