Strong hands once built a structure
Ancestors who worked endlessly
in an old, unsettled time.
And now, tis I who benefits
a creation made of stone
this house, a loving bounty
and a place I call “my own”.
Author’s note: The “homestead” was built by my great-great grandparents after they immigrated from Germany in the 1840’s. This house is shared with the appreciating many.
