Of Kith And Kin – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Kin – Word of the Day


Taken recently at the Bunbury Wetlands (Big Swamp), mother and children 🙂


Of Kith And Kin

Of kith and kin
and shared blood,
resembling much likeness,
yet only in the heart of hearts,
for all else is naught,
save for the love I have for all
living things,
kindred spirits
in this great adventure of life,
where all things are my cousins.

  2. A very nice poem, and I see that birthday congratulations are also in order. I’ll forward this to my mother, who loves both poetry, and ducks.
