HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHEERY!

1881 - Eleanor Farjeon, English writer (Martin Pippin) - she wrote the poem/song Morning Has Broken (one of Cat Stevens hits before he converted to Islam and arranged for piano by Rick Wakeman :lol: ) and a play/novel called the Silver Curlew which was about the earliest book I read which had a definite conservation element in it.

I love these lists! :lol:
