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 Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
