Re­mem­ber­ing Port aux Basques

The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - Editorial - BY MARJAREE PATEY

Many years ago, I wanted to roam.

I picked Port aux Basques and called it my home.

Port aux Basques is a nice place. Yes, that is true.

The peo­ple, they are friendly and al­ways there for you. You drove down­town. There’s a view to see. Watch the Ma­rine At­lantic boats Com­ing in from the sea.

Ev­ery night we went up To Harry Tom’s

To play the har­mon­ica And lis­ten to the songs.

I worked in the fish plant. There were many friends. Their mem­o­ries I’ll cher­ish Un­til my life ends.

When my life is over

And they lay me to rest

I want to stay in Port aux Basques The place I liked the best.

Now my poem is ended.

I have noth­ing more to say. I am a proud New­found­lan­der From Tally Cove, For­tune Bay.
