Across the Ocean

Across the OceanBrittany coast.jpg

I was conceived

Beyond the ocean

Years ago

Long after I had been born here

I went back to the place

Across the ocean

Where I first began

Or so my father showed me

That was a year before

I was blessed with my first child

By some coincidence of time and place

She was begun there as well

That summer

In the land of my ancestors

The Celts

In Brittany

I come from across the ocean

But I am home here

Although I appreciate

My beginnings
