GONE WITH THE WIND – By Dmitri Allicock + video

Gone with the Wind

GONE WITH THE WIND
[The 1800 home of the Paterson’s of Upper Demerara, Christianburg-British Guiana-]

By Dmitri Allicock

In my heart there lives a special place
For the memory of a dear time and space
A sacred place where my heritage is found
Along Demerara River’s hallowed ground 
A place where many graves stands arrayed
The journey of the winds of time on parade
Over two centuries of Upper Demerara to keep
Where many now lie peaceful, in eternal sleep
A fountain of stories and amazing history for me
That exist in that sanctified place across the sea
A story of time and space that I try to understand
My dear ancestor’s blessed place, in another land
