Plymouth, Ma.~by rldubour


Plymouth, Ma. one of most favorite places to visit. This script was written some time ago and there might be some changes I am not aware of.

 

Plymouth Mass.

Don’t know where to go this year? Gee, I am glad you asked.
If you never been there, pack your bags and head for Plymouth, Mass.
Each step you take is history, that is, if you are a buff.
Myself, with U.S. History, I just can’t get enough.
To survive that first long winter, the courage that it took.
Half had passed; the rest stayed fast and kept a good outlook.
Plymouth is full of history, a great vacation spot.
The first point of interest is the famous Plymouth Rock.
To the left a walking park overlooking Plymouth beach.
It is there we find, Mayflower Two, exact replica to teach.
You can board this pilgrim’s ship and vision how it was.
How they survived the crossing sea, to come to America.
The actors are magnificent, it’s like time was standing still.
They play the part just perfectly, with no fancy frills.
I’ll talk some more about those actors, when we visit the Plantation.
For now let’s walk around, to view history on your vacation.

To the right of the Mayflower Two, is the Hobbamock; a Home site creation.
Once inhabited by the Wampanoag Native American nation.
Across the street and up the hill, is the Plymouth National Wax Museum.
Right out front stands Chief Massasoit, from which the state was named from.
The next museum that I should mention is the Plymouth Hall Museum.
America’s oldest museum, originating from their faith and freedom.
Next, I’ll bring to your attention,
Historic home sites I can not forget to mention.
The Spooner House, built in 1747, this was home to five generations.
Over 200 years of Spooner’s, they all followed in succession.
Built in 1677, The Harlow Old Fort House now hosts demonstrations.
Of the 17th century household practices, spinning, weaving and other creations.
The Jabez Howland House bought this house in 1667, where phrases still run silly.
He was the son of two Mayflower passengers, John Howland and Elizabeth Tilly.
Some phrases that you might have heard, like mind your P’s and Q’s.
End of my rope, pop goes the weasel, sleep tight, just to name a few.
The Richard Sparrow House, built in 1640.
This is Plymouths oldest house, truly one to see.

First Parish Church is the oldest continuous church in New England.
Standing below, Burial Hill and where the very first Fort did stand.
William Bradford, the second Governor of Plymouth Colony, buried on the hill.
But, you won’t find any pilgrims; it’s been a secret until this day still.
Then off to the right and down the hill.
One can not go to Plymouth and not see Jenney Grist Mill.
Pilgrim John Jenney built America’s first grist mill on this site in 1636.
Watch the grinding stones turned by huge water wheel as they mix.
Find out how important this mill was, to the Pilgrims and to our country.
Listen to the amazing journey and struggles of the Pilgrims to be free.
A nice walk back from the mill is the Pilgrims Path.
View, dedications to the men and woman of a life long past.
Next point of interest, The Plimouth Plantation, only 3 and ½ miles away.
To visit here and watch them act, you truly will be amazed.
This living history working museum depicts the life in early 17th century.
Of the Pilgrims and Native Americans as close as it used to be.
I mentioned the great actors at the beginning of this poem.
They deserve the highest acclimates, their talent has been shown.
Now if I missed a point of interest that I failed to enter.
Please make sure you stop by, Plymouth Visitor Information Center.
Don’t know where to go this year? Gee, I am glad you asked.
If you never been there, pack your bags and head for Plymouth, Mass.
