Passing on Legacies
FrodoTook wrote:Hello friends. I remember all of you well and so very fondly.
I am a very proud grandfather now. My son, George Travis Junior, is now a father.
I am happy for my son.
I know he will be a great father.
Just a little tid bit ...
he told me
"Dad, I'm gonna turn her on to Tolkien just like you did for me"
"I will read to her"
There, see! The legacy is passed
from passion burning long and deep;
the songs and stories we have loved
will fire her heart and bless with sleep.
Oh watch out world! A brave heart comes!
For she, shieldmaiden, tall and strong
will join life's mighty folk indeed,
shall by her life birth epic song!
Hooray for fathers who impart
the neverending gift of tales,
imagination's truest bread.
Oh may she grow all wise and good,
and heart to heart be richly fed.
