colonial clapboards

wear weather of centuries

bounding the hearth

its adjacencies forming

the intimate space

generations called home

where the wild wooded

northern frontier

promised gifts of seclusion

the private pursuit

of a life lived by one’s

libertarian lights

free will flourishing

in and among nature’s bounty

where hands head and heart

worked and worked

at fulfilling their snow laden

self-imposed purpose

a freehold existence in yield

of a new world inheritance

useable legacies carved

from the good wood

and sustenant soil of liberty

leaving posterity blessed

with fit means to

construct its own choices
