they came to be free

from woe and misery

of the old world

and yet

the legacy

is not puritan

or as the driven snow

eh?

it is in the way

the needed the natives

to live and yet

they slew

all they knew

and grew too much

and as scuh

give thanks

but do not forget to

give thanks and worrow

today and tomorrow

from a homily by fr sam dinsdale
