|Stones for a growing Felix Mendelssohn
|On the day I did hear him say to her that poetry -- it was then I did find
there in the
near to them. He was only a wee little mouse then. And every week that he did grow a more week old, I just put one more gray stone in the
row of his growing
. And there was nineteen more gray stones in the row when the Angels did bring the dear baby to
Larry and Jean
than there was stones in the row when they was married. And now there are
a goodly number
more stones in the row of Felix Mendelssohn's weeks of growing old.
