“Nina (of Medina)”

We call her “Nina of Medina
The girl with the golden hair
Her eyes open and white
She had lost her sight
But still a delight, to all. 
Nina of Medina played the concertina 
With the bellows stretched wide taking air
There was no one more fair than Nina of Medina. 
When Nina sang, a crowd appeared
To listen to her golden voice
No one wanted to miss
A chance like this
To see Nina of Medina. 
From Morrie’s childhood memory of Nina 4/19
