Poem from Sally Daugherty
Member Sally Daugherty shares a poem she was inspired to write after doing research with Fold3. She thought it might be of use, or at least some amusement to viewers.
My brain churns this morning
yielding an occasional belch of insight
or heart felt pang of remorse.
Must digest theory of yesterday.
That banquet of aged information
visible, gobbled up from Fold 3.
New Hampshire bones lie undisturbed as
my ancestor inhabits the internet
exposed for anyone to see.
