had a pioneer family blessed with eleven kids
were exceptional, finding love as others bid
married nice Metis folk much like themselves
beautiful culture lived daily, not stored on shelves.
Abraham married Lucie Parenteau- his belle
included Dumont, Garriepy
and Montour as well.
brawn, brain, culture- the best of blessed.
made our family complete, settling with the rest.
Montour wed Gregoire Falcon says proud Mom Marie
connects with the Landry, Falcon and Rose family tree.
family is growing but stays within our culture
to love and laugh as we make musical rapture.
