i will keep calm
and keep researching…
in spite of my assertion of disappointment
that the ready answer
keener minds have
we are really just at the beginning
of this science
all of these different studies
on that which may be discovered
i am mindful of a great gratitude
for the things that I have been able to discover…
and which knowledge
no other generation of us
ever had even the slightest chance
it is a wonderful picture we have been given…
a picture which fastidiously
places us personally
upon the tree of life
the reality of our descent
both known and unknown…
is far removed from youthful thoughts of alienation
generations of relations…
is a great gift
it is a story
i can pass on
to those who have not yet even been born…
and thanks to M-168
and even pf7443 whoever he was…
that very special lady

Great poem; truly enjoyed it. Thanks!
Wonderful! Thanks for that, Roberta. Can you tell us who was the author?
The author just wants to be known as Harry. He is a participant on one of the lists I moderate. He wrote this in a reply and I just reformatted it a bit. I thought it was very elegant and profound.
Oh, YES!!! It’s so great to be a leaf on that big Tree, even if I never know all the branches.
Thank you, Harry. Thank you, Roberta.
