Subject: happy? - April 29

The 4/29/1903 landslide at Frank, British Columbia wiped out the entire town except for a single baby girl.

        On a grim and tragic morning in 1903
        A little babe lay weeping, a pitiful sight to see;
        A pitiful sight was she, was she
        There in the shimmering morning.

        Around the babe was a sea of stones
        A million ton or more,

        That slid right off a mountain top
        With a horrifying roar,
        With a horrifying roar, they tore,
        Into the        shimmering morning.

        "Ballad of Frank Slide," Ed McCurdy on The Folk Singer, Seeck LP, 1957
