Welcome Home


Will 147 years of history
surprise me – I think not,
yesterday was farther off.

In the blink of an eye I will
be in the same place my
Great Grandfather of three

generations removed
hailed from. I have never
been there before but I

know it well. I wonder if
it will remember me,
saying hello prodigal son,

welcome home...
