Some General & Family Resources for Ted
Somebody labored years ago
Whose name I do not even know
Ploughed ground or sailed the open sea,
And loved a maid that I might be.

Two centuries ago or more
A woman at an English door
Looked fondly at a lilac tree
And passed that bit of pride to me.

One stood enraptured when he heard
The music of a singing bird,
And now with each returning spring,
I find I do the selfsame thing.

Could we untangle all our lives
And learn how much in us survives,
We might discover just how far
Goes back what makes us what we are.

Edgar A. Guest
