I believe this poem was written by my aunt during a newspaper contest.It was about the yr, he said that was published,1955,when Jean sent several of her poems including this one,to a New York publisher who put an add in a magazine;Send us your poems,if we publish them we'll send you $500.00.Well,she never got the money and she didn't get her poems back.
