The sentinel is happy on guard
duty
over the fortress.
His belly is full of fish and
beans and
a fine woman in la maison
nearby
promised to meet him
later.
He’s proud of this new
land.
One day he’ll marry
and
raise strong sons.
But to-day
his eyes are alert for Les
Anglais --
they’re coming to steal his
dreams.
