Families in portraits drawn

History frozen in colors grand

Portrait drawn by artists hand

Pictures of how life had been

Ancestors remembered never seen.

Hanging now in dusty frames

Ghostly faces forgotten names

A past that we should not forget

Ignore our history, now regret.

Climb into our family tree

Familial traces you may see

Surprised at what you may find

From a simple picture in your mind.
