Connecticut - Poem by William Croft

Oh! Connecticut
My only state of mind.
Where the river sheds
The over floating of my eyes.
Where thy people are my people
And thy country
Just my country in disguise.
Where the lawns lends to the scenery
An Olympic peace.
Where rainbow trees
Waives tainted leaves
To exquisite lovers
Necking nearby a mirrored lake.
Where the wind blows smoothly
As a nature storyteller.
Where snow falls
Like little wingless angels
Blessing life all over.

Now, oh! Connecticut
You’re my fatherland!

One day down the road
You’ll be my home
And my graveyard.

Maybe, under a tree,
Nearby a lake,
My bones will rest forever,
While lovers may be found
Happy all the time.

I’ll be happy then too!

(aka Luis Eusebio)
