Hi Everyone:

A good friend, who is British, remembers and is haunted by this poem from her childhood and is desperate to find or figure out how to find the author. Any help much appreciated.

Up a little twisty stair
Through a tiny door
To a most enchanting place
The land of years before.

Here is Grandpa's rocking chair
Great Aunt Jemima's shawl
A crinoline great Grandma wore
At her first grown up ball.

A little pair of satin shoes
A coat of bottle green
And Grandma Trinder's wedding dress
The sweetest ever seen.

Oh, magic land of years before
What happy times we share
When we go through the tiny door
Up the little twisty stair.

Thank you so much,


Martín Blasco
