Polish and Proud, an Ode to My Family History

The ode to my family history is a bit of an epic. I guess that comes as no surprise given how wordy I am in my blog posts ;-) I didn't intend for it to go on and on, but it sort of took on a life of its own as I was composing it.

I haven't done a scrapbook page in quite some time so I thought I'd brush away some of the cobwebs and give it a go. (Click on the image to view it larger.)

I'm no poet. I don't even know the rules of poetry. But I know that good poetry comes from the heart. And so I give you a heartfelt ode to my family's history...
