Roots & Wings Contest Entry January 2021
My thrice great grandfather
Had a sweet little sister

Her heart swelled with song
A melodious life
Though physically strong
In that time of strife

She wrote with great feeling
About all that she knew
And all she was seeing
Even what she lived through

Her future not to be
Much too young she died
The soul long set free
Tears long since cried

One of her works remains
Poignant words of home
Her family took great pains
To keep her alive in poem
