Families - Poem by Marilyn Lott

I think families are softly woven
Just like a piece of fine linen
Such tight and delicate threads
Many fragile stitches are hidden

Tombstones tell a story
When folks were born and died
Old, worn and weary
But the important dates don’t lie

Many come from other countries
It’s exciting for us to see
Each one tells a special story
Moss-covered under a tree

Genealogy books are so important
To follow families down the line
Sometimes quotes from family members
And newspaper clippings over time

It takes a lot of work and dedication
To put this information together
But it’s so important to pass down
So much there is to capture

So we cherish our extended families
No way better than genealogy books
And pass them down to generations
Stories flow softly like a gentle brook!
