To My Ancestor  

Öltje Tiegler, ahnenfrau
I owe you my life.
Your body was the blueprint for my genes,
your name reveals life skills,
canniness allowed you to grow old.
Thank you for the struggles you went through.
Life would have been so hard,
but you managed to survive.
Does it please you to 
discover the result in me?

Author Notes

Öltje Tiegler is an ancestor 11 generations back. We owe so much to people we never met but without them we wouldn't be here. Thank you to them all!!!!!

People often forget the importance of looking back and thanking their ancestors. I'm glad you honored yours in this poem.
