1887 Martha


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.

My first book of poetry will be coming out in the next several weeks. Mothers Forever is a verse novel telling the life stories of three women who are brought together by circumstances all too familiar throughout history.

The book will be available electronically, in print, and as print-on-demand. As soon as everything is finalized, I’ll post links to the retailers.
