This work has reached the exceptional level
Had to use certain words and a potlatch entry


by dragonpoet

They aren't legend, they aren't fable,
Manners at church and at table
They're a path, not a dead end.
They aren't fable, they aren't legend.

Part of custom, family folklore
Heritage, culture, and much more
Part of your heart, makes it drum
Family folklore, part of custom.

Tried and true, not just convention,
Create sadness prevention.
Bringing remembrance to me and you
Not just convention, tried and true
