A Stranger Homesick

To everyone in this town his is a stranger's face
The dark haired young man from the far away place
His grasp of the English language is not good
And he struggles for to make himself understood
He left home for to travel last year in early May
And now he feels homesick for home fields far away
For the beautiful green coastal countryside of Brittany in France
Where he has been linked to by birth circumstance
Of the lure of the wander some people do sing
But homesickness is such a very sad thing
He hopes to be home in Spring for to see the wildflowers
In the fields lush and green after mild April showers
A stranger homesick for his home far away
In this town his will not be a very long stay.
