                                      ~ Remembrance ~

                                   And sometime when I have become
                                          A Quiet portrait on a wall,
                                    Will you, my fair descendant, stop
                                               To think of me at all?

                             Suppose your hands are shaped like mine,
                                  You have my 'nutmeg' sense of fun;
                                     Will there be one to tell you so,
                                    There, when my days are done?

                              If you love books, and fires, and songs,
                             And silvery moons in star-studded skies,
                              Then toss me a look of shared delight
                                  From those, my own blue eyes;

                                   For there is kinship in a curl,
                              And keepsakes in a spoken name,
                            And wine of live may yet be poured,
                                    By hands, with in a frame.
                                                            author unknown

Anyone with knowledge of the author of this poem, let me know and I will give credit where credit is do.
