One of the pleasures that Margaret enjoyed very much was music. This poem was found in her personal belongings:
You can hear music everywhere,
If you have a heart that sings,
In ordinary things....
In the rhythm of the rain drops,
In the rippling of a stream,
In the lilt of children's laughter
As they romp upon the green
In the warm voice of a friend
and the comfort that it brings
You can hear music everywhere
In you have a heart that sings.
