There lies a land in the west and north
Whither the bravest men went forth,
And daunted not by fog or ice
They came at last to a Paradise.
Full two thousand miles it lay
Washed by a sea of English grey;
And they called it Newfoundland at sight,
It's rather the land of Heart's Delight.

I have seen the Mediterranean's blue
Lazily lapping the southern shores,
And groves where the orange blossoms grow,
And the cypress shading cathedral doors.
I have seen the moon in the desert place
Flooding the pyramid's stony face,
And crowned by the banks of the sacred Nile,
Pharoahs, carved in an ancient style;
All I have loved and known.
But on moonlight nights, in the land I love,
I have slept with the stars and trees above,
By a big log fire that sputters and creeks,
And a river that sobs itself to sleep,
And perhaps with frightened eyes that blink
The timid deer comes down to drink;
These I have loved and known.

Page Ninety-One 

I have seen sweet places in foreign lands,
Gardens tended by cunning hands,
Houses old as the hills in fame,
Bearing the weight of a noble name;
All I have seen and known.
But Nature gardens the land I choose,
And gives her names such as lovers use;
Fortune Bay-was the fortune Love?
Conception-borrowed from Heaven above;
Breakheart Point-what a world of woe-
A maiden watching her lover go.
Heart's Content-here they came at last,
When the toil and grief of their life was past;
These I have loved and known.

There lies a land in the west and north
Whither the bravest men went forth;
And daunted not by fog nor ice
They came at last to a Paradise.
A land to be won by the men who durst,
No wonder the British chose it first,
And they called it Newfoundland at sight,
It's rather the land of Heart's Delight.
