One tree, two tree, red tree, blue tree

On all the other websites
despite the countless trees
they made me feel alone
and asked for many fees

They offered lots of hints
but never gave a clue
that all of us are cousins
including me and you

They kept me isolated
and said I was unique
for only fifty dollars
I could have a peek...

I knew that it was wrong
and not a place for me
I didn't know what else to do
'till I found WikiTree

WikiTree is different
they don't charge any fee
giving everything we need
and all of it is free

The Honor Code is special
in guiding how we act
in bringing us together
as signers of the pact

Nobody is nicer
than here at WikiTree
always sharing positives
and generosity

I learned we're all related
we share the same big tree
we truly find our family
in this community :)

i weite and love poetry. i love your poem and am new to the site. thank you for sharing!
Absolutely wonderful as you are....thank you!
Lovely - my sentiments exactly!
Very good poem, Keith Hathaway.
Beautifully done. Bravo.
I do, I do, I have an Embroidery Machine...
Nice to see your nice poem still going around Keith. Well done.
What a nice poem, Keith!  I am glad someone asked if they could share it on facebook, because I want to as well.  I will definitely give your name, of course (having been a teacher, I know I should).  I use my facebook page to collect cousins, and promote genealogy research with the reluctant ones.  I also post pictures of kitties and the need for coffee.  I have been telling people about Wiki Tree (especially an actual genealogist cousin), and I think this will light a fire under them.  Of course, I have about 4 online trees, and there are other trees which also are a "one size fits all" variety, but Wiki Tree is best!  (I just wish there was a guidebook that gives an tour of the site, because it is overwhelming).  Again, I thank you for the poem, and you can find it on my facebook page because my page is pretty "open":  :D  Have a great day!
Keith, may I adopt you as my son???  You are too cool for school!  :-)
I don't know what to say... other than what's for dinner mom?

Thank you for the positive words, it makes my day sunnier :)

And like a wildfire, starting from the American northeast, the poetic bug is now being evidenced from the American Pacific coast......!

I couldn't have said it better! Cousin Keith!  We all have our talents and blessings, so I think we should use them.  Thanks for sharing with us, and you have just made WikiTree a fun place to be today.
