Old witch, fell in a ditch, picked up a penny and thought she was rich!
Ain’t no man ought to eat his woman’s food year in and year out, and see his children running wild.
Oh, Miss Lottie!
Lizabeth and her brother were very bored one day. So, her brother, Joey, suggested going to Miss Lottie's house. So they went over and were so bored they decided to throw pebbles to ruin her prized marigolds. When she came out to tell them to leave, they taunted her and ran off laughing.
Lizabeth overhears her parents talking about their situation; her dad not having a job and her mother being the head of the household. She hears her dad talking to her mom, and no matter how her mom tries to console her dad, it doesn't help. Then, he starts sobbing. Lizabeth heard and broke down as well, for something she though was so powerful was now suddenly weak.
After breaking down, no matter how her brother Joey tried to stop her, Lizabeth ran to Miss Lottie's yard, where she rips out her flowers in confusion, sadness, anger, and frustration. Then, she sees Miss Lottie in front of her. She now realizes that she has entered womanhood.
