By John I. Blair

In Camargo our reunion day
Has dawned yet once again,
With as many of the Blairs

As can attend, though none Is surnamed Blair, The consequence quite logical

Of clan descent
From sisters five
And just a single brother.

Report is out
That mostly senior cousins
Have arrived

As the family succumbs
To centrifugal effects
Induced by speeding years.

Those born here will return,
Plus those who feel Camargo is the place
Their birth site should have been.

As if by magnets in our blood
We’re drawn together here
From far across the land

To laugh at stories we’ve all heard
A hundred times, and shed a tear
At harms that age has done;

And never doubt
We’ll stay together in our hearts
Even should Camargo pass away.
