Leo Love and Detta Fay

The shoemaker in my home town was Leo Love.
Leo Love had a fat wife named Detta Fay.

Together,
they repaired shoes on an ancient hand-crank machine.
Leo would guide the shoe;
Detta Fay would turn the crank.

The Loves were very poor.
They had no children.
When Leo died
Detta Fay grew very thin.
