Land of My Fathers Poetry Club

Home

Why does my homeland still linger within
When since leaving a lifetime has passed
What need now for me of country and kin
With the distance between us so vast
What magical spell now compels me
To long for her faithful embrace
And abandon this land that has kept me
To return to that far distant place
Does she now call me home to my duty
To take back the life that she gave
When young I was blind to her beauty
But want no other place for my grave
