When a Dream Came True – Norman A. Rubin
Sweet tales that end ‘they lived happily after’ was the delight of Delilah, an Afro-American housekeeper, when she read bedtimes stories to her charges – David, a freckled faced boy of seven years and little Betty going on five years.
Mother and father didn’t know the last name of Delilah; not that she didn’t have a birth name and when asked she always said ‘Delilah’ and nothing more. Nor she didn’t know her birth date. Her wrinkled face showed signs of coming old age, but she had laughing eyes and a ready smile to her sweet lips. She was always dressed in a colored apron on her dark dress and a red polka dot bandana on the white of her hair. When she laughed it shook her plump body from the tip of her wee nose to her wiggling toes.
