    My husband came across the writings of Granny James in 2004, in the Ozark County Library in Gainesville, Missouri. I was looking through the poetry section and a plain black book with mailbox-type letters displaying the word, POEMS, had been placed on the front of the book. Of course, I had to check out this treasure. On the way back to Texas, there were tears of joy, & from simply being touched by this magnificent woman. Ms. James passed away in 1979 and is buried near Dawt, Missouri, where she grew up. I hope you enjoy her wonderful writings! -) . Respectfully, dawn

  Would have me to do.

If I patterned after them
  And they fell short of the goal,
Then tell me, oh, pray tell me

God gave me a being

My Life

 I was born in the good old Ozarks
On October the 19th,1891. 
I have lived here all my life
Tis the best place under the sun.
I can't say I was always happy
I merely lived and thrived,  
Prefering to live out under the sun
As within closed walls be hived.
