Sonnet # 5 Fifty Years Of Caring - Poem by John A. Hancock

Fifty years ago upon an open meadow
A dream took root from all who gather'd there
To build a home for our treasured seniors
Rising upon a foundation of love and care
A place where empathy and compassion bloom'd
From a seed planted nourished by a common need
To make the golden twilight years our seniors earned
From all the love they passed on to you and and me
Today while all here in attendance we pause
To acknowledge what joy this humble place provides
And for Fifty Years of Caring we are truly thankful
Whilst we await the birth of our new home just outside
So let us all join in celebration with happy smiles and good cheer
To gratefully honor those wingless angels we lovingly call our volunteers
