Sometimes our folks in
Forget us, and fail to write,
And you can be sure when the "Pilot" comes
It's a very welcome sight.
Now a word of appreciation
To our correspondent who
Keeps us in touch withour folks in Exploits
And their coming and goings too.
It's really grand that
Who leave Exploits in the fall,
Return again in the spring
I know they're welcomed back by all.
We just love to come to
Where the friendliest people live,
Like our very good friend Mrs. Garland
She's one of the best the world can give.
We'll not soon forget the
table she set
We all ate so much it just hurt, Our weakness
she knew, when we thought we were through
She served us Partridge-Berry Pie for dessert.
After supper (Tea) she
played the organ
And we surely had a good sing,
With Elihu, Ethel and Myrtle
We sure made the rafters ring
There's the Sceviours,
Winsors and Budgells,
The Jacobs and the Lillys are some
Of the friendly people you meet
In Exploits every year when you come.
So again we say "Thank
You to the Pilot"
For bits of news from the Harbours and Bights,
For us it's a thrill, we scan through it until
We find news from our dear old EXPLOITS.
