What message does the artist's easel hold?
When it is viewed, it is never old.
Was there a message words never told?

What rhythm lingers from a well-polished line?
Its message is shared true and fine.
Memory lives on, nothing left behind.

What difficult path has life overcame?
What stepping stones has the builder laid?
What are the plans the Maker made?

What can be written in tomorrow's page?
Walk calmly through, ere sunlight fades.
Then history claims this present age.

Aunt Esther,
It is awesome to me the way that you are able to put the words together in poetry to express
thoughts and feelings. What a gift God has given
you. I remember as a child sensing something
special about you and now I see it again!
Love, Rosie
