My Colonial 7th Great Grandmother, Maria Magdalena Holoch (nee Hess)

Quietly passing
Through hill and dale
Keeping secrets
In her bridal veil

46 leagues
Down the river
A colonial woman
Maria Magdalena

Dear Great Grandma
Rest in peace
On the banks
Of the Susquehanna

The river flows
The passing years ebb
Eternal spring water
Our family web
