Fort St. Jean Baptiste


We visited an ancient Fort
Built in the year of 1716
Excitement seeped into our bones
I’m sure you’d know what I mean

The Fort was built by the French
And today it still proudly stands
For folks like you and me
Just like a visit to foreign lands

Period costumes are worn each day
By those who guided us through
This wonderful amazing Fort
I know you would love it too

Ervin adored the Fort as well
With his cheery and sweet smile
Why he just blended right in
Taking a boat trip for awhile

I hope you can enjoy as we did
A place where there is so much to see
One day when you’re traveling around
Visit the great Fort St. Jean Baptiste!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
