MayFlower – A Poem

Crataegus monogyna – Mayflower – Image by leswalley from Pixabay

The Mayflower, in petal hull traveled ocean soil,

A nation, germinating in dreams of independence, sails.

From hope’s lookout, oared stems envision new roots –

As destiny’s voyage brave storms to freedom’s tribute.

Out of Plymouth, a pilgrimage exodus, a magna carta,

A nation-family birthed on the decks of November.

  1. Was it the Mayflower that the irish folk boarded setting sail for the shores of the new world.
    A finely crafted tribute to the folk who founded a place in the sun at Plymouth Rock.
    It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits . . . that we may all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection . . . for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have enjoyed . . . and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us . . . that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions. – George Washington
    Happy Thanksgiving to the nation, happy thanksgiving to the people who found their place in the sun.
