above, a postcard depicting a Thames River tributary
Westward it winds past each town
Growing broader as it flows down
Onward it glides, never weary,
Meandering so soft and cheery.
The sunbeams on the water glance,
Skipping about in slivery dance,
From morn till eve the cattle feed
‘Neath lofty elms along the mead.
And on its banks, in warrior pride,
The brave Tecumseh fought and died,
Peace and prosperity now reigns
Along the fertile vale of Thames.
Now soon the waters meet and pair
With the wavelets of St. Clair;
As maids when wed do lose their names,
No longer is it called the Thames.
