Genealogy Clerihew

Hi. Today I decided to join Randy Seaver over at Genea-Musings to do his Saturday Night Fun…Here is today’s challenge:
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1) Write a Genealogy Clerihew (and what is a “clerihew” you ask? See Jim Smith’s post today for more details and his clerihew (briefly, a clerihew is a four-line irregular poem or verse that follows an AABB rhyme scheme. It is named for the birthday of Edmund Clerihew Bentley the inventor, aka writer, aka poet.”). If you’re feeling especially creative, write two or more!

2) Show us your genealogy clerihew in a blog post of your own, in a comment on this blog post, or in a Facebook comment or update. C’mon, dazzle your readers and friends with your poetry and creativeness.

Ok…Here is my first attempt….

To find my families is my desire
It is what sets my heart afire
John Smith was found, and Fralick too
Brick walls I have, quite a few.
