Wildflowers grow on the lawn,
As we had long forgotten this house,
A mud hut By the vast Lake Van,
As a history of clan and family,
Was once repeated at every bedtime,
More than many,
To the lucky kids spoilt terribly,
As dad recollected days of shepherdry,
In his days of youth blossoming quietly,
With a stubbornness to read,
Along the green mountains,
Of winter cold and hard work,
To educate himself for a future bright,
As he managed to take flight,
To the big city, Even university,
Without means of aid or money,
With strains of too many books,
On his eyes that required glasses,
Leading his path to a dream to many,
Even in this age of modernity,
As barriers stood everywhere,
Language was learned and studied,
As no problem remained,
For the one who strived for knowledge,
He went to the U.S. of A.,
To become a great man today.

Reviewed by Sandie Angel 8/29/2004
Every life is like a book of history,
as the chapters turn one by one.

Glorius are the feelings,
as the chapters turn into great writings.

The harvest was a great reward,
when reading into the life of a great man.

Wonderful indeed!
