A Memory Of Christiana CA
-
-
-
Where Blackmoor was the road that ledB
To Bath she could not showC
Nor point the sky that overspreadB
Towns ten miles off or soC
-
But that Calcutta stood this wayD
Cape Horn there figured fellE
That here was Boston here BombayD
She could declare full wellE
-
Less known to her the track athwartB
Froom Mead or Yell'ham WoodB
Than how to make some Austral portB
In seas of surly moodB
-
She saw the glint of Guinea's shoreF
Behind the plum tree nighG
Heard old unruly Biscay's roarF
In the weir's purl hard byG
-
My son's a sailor and he knowsH
All seas and many landsI
And when he's home he points and showsH
Each country where it standsI
-
He's now just there by Gib's high rockJ
And when he gets you seeA
To Portsmouth here behind the clockJ
Then he'll come back to meA
