Focusing on the distant shore

with historical eyes once more.

Trying to clarify the seascape

disguised in mysterious shapes.

Impossible to describe the gist,

if you've never sailed in the mist.

Walking along the dunes area,

sitting around on moss-cushions,

here, there, thinking of that era,

our country's history was written.

How settlers of French-Canada,

survived harsh winters laughing.

Backwoodsmen, and fur-trappers,

celebrated selling their good furs,

drinking liquor, telling wild tales.

Marked the way, made new trails,

our Kings, queens wanting more,

hundreds of lives lost in the cold.

Ghostly fog dressed in a shroud,

shades of gray, turbulent clouds,

nothing much left at large to see.

You only hear a bobbling bell,

warning us of an agitated sea.

Wonder if the blind vessel hears

that clear sounding bell as well?
