The legend of PHOEBE SNOW,
Not many still know…
Cleanly, in turn,
Won’t stain a white dress you know!
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western,
An Eastern railroad’s suggestion…
The advertising ploy
Their business to buoy,
They hauled the stuff and their own steam locos. digestion!
Phoebe Snow–played by a real person,
Had rhymes made up for each version…
Reading the latest one sent!
