Genealogical Details

With genealogical details at my finger tips
I'd related one to the other
To Argentina by Kriesmarine
These humble servants did indeed travel

And back and forth the mystery went
These pieces of the puzzle
Until finally – eureka!
I'd found the missing link

This same family who were thought to be German
Were in fact Austrian
And from Argentina had moved again
Their last known address
Lake Titicaca - straddled between Peru and Bolivia

On Isla de Sol they constructed a home
And spent summers on Isla de la Luna
And though It wasn't Austria nor Argentina
They lived on top of the world

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
