Blenheim/Kent 1825........

BLENHEIM/KENT 1825.......

In green surrounding toil filled fields
That joyed the lives of youthful days
Is Blenheim Town

Where once dense and ancient forests reigned
These prosperous Golden Acres came
With the rise of Blenheim Town

Here Red Men hunted fought and trod
In this place, upon this sod
At Blenheim Town

Through ties of memory this now distant one retains
A land where traveled French, British and Yankee strains
Past Blenheim Town

Where John Brown brought freed slaves to liberty
To Lake Erie's Eau at Shrewsbury
Near Blenheim Town

Alas! So long ago in history's past ?
That view now transcends that which cast
This Blenheim Town.
