Travel Haiku - Hudson and Champlain's 400th Anniversary (New York State)


my little river haiku
joins hudson and champlain's
400th anniversary celebration

my little river haiku flows
into hudson to cheer up
its 400th anniversary celebrations

my little river haiku flows
10,000 miles into Chronogram
a Hudson Bay magazine

childhood river
so small
it has become

In 1609, a decade before the Mayflower landed in Plymouth, Henry Hudson and Samuel de Champlain explored the northern and southern waterways of what is now New York State, setting the stage for settlement of the Hudson and Champlain valleys. Commemorate the 400th anniversary of their expeditions with events and celebrations spanning the entire state and happening throughout the year, such as the 'Hudson River Panorama: 400 Years' exhibit at the Albany Institute of History & Art, the Circus-in-the-Park Extravaganza in Nyack, or the Cat'n Around Catskill 2009 outdoor art festival.

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
