The following poem is included in the book Mothers Forever, a verse novel telling the life stories of three women brought together by duty, service, and the roles mothers play in helping each other cope with difficult situations.
I hope that you enjoy the book.
The little village of Hamorton
Was ready when Martha Harrison was born,
Ready to share its lessons of the past
To this granddaughter of a former slave.
Her sense of action would be strong.
She would never stray from that value.
People were waiting for Martha to be born
So what history started could be continued.
A life of action would be her legacy
Just as her family had taught her.
Martha’s birth started something
Worthy of this little village, Hamorton.
