Harridan Hattie crept up one day
And frightened the neighbourhood kids away.
Oh! She fumed, she cursed and she spat
She didn’t spare even the measly cat.
Harridan Hattie sat at her window
And scowled for the sun bothered her to the core.
Behold, there was a knock on her door.
‘Who dares bother Hattie! Both me no more!’
‘Tis’ me,’ came the meek voice of little Grace.
Harridan Hattie felt nauseous looking at her cherubic face.
‘Mommy said we must always share
Our goodies with those who for none care!’
Something inside Harridan Hattie snapped,
She let little Grace step inside.
They both ate lemonade and cookies,
And Hattie listened to little Grace’s stories.
Little Grace unfailingly visited old Hattie.
They formed a bond; a friendship, you see.
A few months later Hattie stepped into the sunshine,
Walking hand in hand with Grace, wearing a broad smile!
