Songs of Old

I know you're tired of seeing the 'stuff' from Mother's house--
quite frankly, I'm tired of digging into these boxes
but, some of this is interesting
Like these pieces of old sheet music

Not popular songs of our day by any means but none the less
interesting!  Why did Mother keep such things?
The book binding on two of these are coming apart.
The pages are tender and fragile

This one is copyrighted 1858 

MCMXII = 1912  
Maybe, these were my Granny's, but
I thought she didn't read music; she just played by ear.
I always thought it was amazing to me,
if you hummed a tune, Granny could play it!
What to do with this old sheet music????

  1. Excellent fodder for collage artists. Sell them on ebay or etsy.
