These deeply personal pieces were made for the family with the intimate care and intent reserved for a friend, teacher or loved one.

They were displayed in the home and became part of the family record.

This acrostic, a playful way to use the letters of a word to organize a poem, uses "Hannah Lewis" to create its poem.
