MY NEWFOUNDLAND POEMS


MY NEWFOUNDLAND HOME

There is a mountain around every turn
a sacred place for which we all yearn
winding roads with woods all around
this describes everyones home town

in every breath is the deep salt air
no smog like the big cities our air is clear
we have water flowing from natural springs
you can stop any time and hear a bird sing

the caplin roll on shore down there
the bake apples and blueberries grow wild here
this Islands a treasure surrounded by sea
this place will always be home to me

AWAITING THE DAY

I return to see Newfoundland each year
never take a vacation elsewhere
most displaced Newfies are the same way
they work away awaiting vacation day

they all return to see family back there
would never dream of going elsewhere
they go home for their jigs dinner Sunday
or to let their kids on the beach to play

They go home to smell the salt air
or for the hospitality you can't find elsewhere
no matter where they are they can't wait for they day
when they return to see those they missed while away


NEWFIES


The doors open wide
but not a soul inside
you call out to them by name
still no answer just the same

thats right we don't live in igloos no more
we have real houses, complete with a door
but locking your door just keeps a honest man out
so lots of people don't lock up when they are busy about

since the fisheries all closed down here
so many people have chosen to resettle elsewhere
their the ones you meet up away
the ones who miss Newfoundland to this very day

WHERE CAN YOU GO....


Where can you go to find warmth and kindness too
people who will willingly help you
where can you go as a stranger today
and make a life long friend in a one week stay

where can you go and be greeted on the street
by not  just one but everyone you meet
where can you go for a party at night
one that lasts until the morning light

Where can you go to find such a place
a place with charm ,beauty and grace
you'll only find a place like that here
In beautiful Newfoundland thats where

A NEWFIE WISH

Newfoundland has another beautiful sight
its the stars that come out each night
you look into the sky and see so far
you can make out every star

the night sky is lit up down here
like diamonds they shine up there
no other place have I seen them so bright
so many stars twinkling at night

 look up and see a shooting star coming your way
make a wish you could aways stay
that some work would come your way
and that you'd never need to move away
