Poetry: Tisquantum

Tisquantum

This country
Was born on a welcoming,
An outstretched hand,
A feeding and a fellowship.
It is a noble heritage
That transcends color and belief.
I come in peace. I rescue you.
I am your brother.
The daunting land and forest creatures
Watched and listened
And all feasted together.
This country
Was born on a welcoming.
