A Photograph in Autumn

A photograph
Of lives gone past
How people lived
What people did

The smiles of youth
The frowns of age
The wrinkled skin
The next of kin

Of those we've loved
An epitaph:
"The Autumn Winds Forgive Our Sins"
My 7th Great Grandfather – Edward Waddington, Lord Bishop of Chichester
