    My dear friend Kim Cruikshank is his great great niece and we visited a statue of him erected in Paisley, Scotland. So happy to find some of his poetry!

    Robert Tannahill has got NOTHING to do with Franklin Illinois. He was born and died, on the years shown, in Paisley, Scotland and a number of his poems are written about Paisley and its surrounding area.

(our Veterans) An Observation And Thought

We once were many and now we are few.
As strands of our graying heads thin and fall to the ground,
So passes the veterans, "our comrades."
Home to their appointed destiny.
Falling from our freedom's ranks to the dust of mother earth's loving embrace.
They pass with a fervent prayer that this worlds's freedoms will live on through all eternity,
Forever stay in place --May God Bless All Veterans--
