All history is long and bold

As destinies do here unfold,

My forebears came in ‘forty-six

Over the sea to join the mix

And oh, how fast this nation grew

From far and wide by crowd or few !

There is a story I’ve been told

By great grandma when she was old,

About the three mast ship they caught

While fleeing from the nearest port

And leaving all they owned behind 

Except mementoes they could find !

That voyage to the promised land

Was long and harsh and out of hand,

No Lady in the Harbor stood

Just dreams of hope and common good !
