A poem about my ancestor.


(Amy Anne Diane Northrup Lincoln—1775-1853)

 

I love a girl with three first names:

Amy Anne Diane.

She has hypnotic power and tames

My wandering heart, but feeds its flames—

Amy Anne Diane.

 

My heart would not be half this true

To Amy Anne Diane

If her first names were only two;

An Amy Anne I'd not pursue

Like Amy Anne Diane.

 

But my heart's been dealt a mortal blow

By Amy Anne Diane.

Oh, tell me please it isn't so;

She lived 200 years ago!

Did Amy Anne Diane.

 

I found her in my family tree—

Amy Anne Diane.

I love her and I hope we'll be

Together for eternity—

Amy Anne Diane and me.

 


Alan Cook, Mystery and walking writer
