Chalking Up a Poem for History

Updated on January 30, 2016

Chalking Up a Poem for History By Diana Pierce

Chalking up a poem or two is just my cup of tea.

No matter if it rhymes or not its reflection is of me.

I count my blessings as I type each thought filled line or phrase,

And hope it reaches someone’s heart as it celebrates our days.

========================================================

This time on earth is short we know, by standards set in stone.

From generations gone away have left impact of their own.

We miss things often not recorded for our eyes to see.

And history doesn’t get its right to make our family tree.

This is a picture of my dad. PFC Ralph K. Madison, Korean War veteran. Much of who I am today is from the influence my dad had on me.

So write it down or take a picture and duplicate the sound,

Then the off-springs we create will know we were around.

Things that happened yesterday can be precious reading,

With a little help from us our kids will know the meaning.

===================================================

Write it down and take pride about what things you do,

Because main events reflect so much about the real you,

Hobbies are just a small part of the talents people pass along,

Our heritage descends hard work and teaching right from wrong.

      Very interesting lines. It is always good to keep some personal records of events and family people for passing on a glimpse of your heritage to the off-springs so that they can learn some good from it.

      Personal histories are interesting. For some years we researched our family trees and it was fun finding names, dates and places, but the part that made it so interesting were the stories of things that happened in their lives.
