In Memory Of Emily Casey
A Poem Titled, 'Many Winters'
All my life is a dance.
When I was young and feeling the earth,
My steps were quick and easy.
The beat of the earth was so loud
That my drum was silent beside it.
All of my life rolled out from my feet
Like my land which had no end
as far as I could see.
The rhythm of my life was pure and free.
As I grew older my feet kept dancing so hard
That I wore a spot in the earth.
At the same time I made a hole in the sky.
I danced to the sun and the rain
and the moon lifted me up
So that I could dance to the stars.
My head touched the clouds sometimes
And my feet danced deep in the earth
So that I became the music.....
......I danced to everywhere
It was the music I dance to everywhere
It was the music of life!
Now my steps are slow and hard
And..... my body fails my spirit,
Yet my dance is still within me and
My song is the air I breathe.
My song insists that I keep dancing forever.
My song insists that I keep rhythm
With all of the earth and the sky.
My song insists that I will never die.

My genealogist sister had many photocopies of articles from a long time ago. She had never gotten a chance to transcribe them. Wants to get rid of all the "stuff" she has, but just couldn't rid of them. She asked me to transcribe them so am taking my time. Thought this might be of interest to you.
L.M.W.(#47059509)and her sister, the Genealogist.
This is an unexpected treasure. Thanks to you both,
William James Casey (1884 - 1962)
