American History - Poem by Marilyn Lott

Don’t you love American history
And pictures from long ago?
American Indians began life here
Founded places we now love so

A difficult life it was back then
But people trudged ahead
With lack of stores as we have now
They lived off the land instead

And always there was the Buffalo
A majestic magnificent beast
Though life was hard I think they had
An untroubled inner peace

And now there are museums
Where we can go now to see
Pictures depicting the way life was
It seems like an eternity

So let’s go back in time, folks
And visit this wonderful place
The Indian and Pioneer museum
Full of history with beauty and grace!

    This makes me remember an argument I had with my friend during my school days. He was arguing that studying History is simply a waste of time & it should be excluded from the curriculum. For me its all the more refreshing to have a splash in history.

    I preserve all outdated gadgets that come my way just to marvel at the remarkable ability of our ancestors to survive under highly limited resources.

    The funniest thing I have is an old television set. It literally looks like a transformer enclosed in a coffin. But I simply love it.

    A sweet 10
