Heritage (three)

“It is not the honor that you take with you,
but the heritage you leave behind”
Branch Rickey

Heritage

The sea captain, now long gone
Left behind him, something strong,
Long and heavy
Big enough for everyone’s envy
A true blast from ages passed
An object of art, an object for use
An anchor strong and made to last

Heritage (one)

“It is not the honor that you take with you,
but the heritage you leave behind”
Branch Rickey

Heritage

Just another brick on the wall?
This window may be small
But those who did it install
Made sure, no one out of it would fall

Something lasting from the ages here shown
The makers worked their fingers to the bone
To build as heritage a wall of stone
Now us youngsters, proudly do it own
