Grade 6

Portugal Cove, St. Philips, NL
Newfoundland and Labrador



Home is where the flowers grow
As you shoo away those pesky crows
Home is where your families are
Even if you’re very far

It’s not the palace of a king
It’s more the place where bluebirds sing
It’s not a town in the old Wild West
Instead it’s where your love is best

It doesn’t take a detective like Sherlock Holmes
To figure out that too many people don’t have homes
The truth is sad but unfortunately true
Some people just don’t have homes like me or you
