An Ode to Puget Sound
Carlton Fitchett, ca. 1944
Source: Washington Songs and Lore, p. 182
A grateful ode to Puget Sound, the land of everything;
I love it from Tulalip to Puyallup, Sequim and Pysht,
And to the Dosewallips where many times I've fished.
There's peace on the Skykomish, on the Queets and on the Hoh,
There's calm on the Nisqually, born of ageless ice and snow;
A land that Nature loves so much she stays the whole year 'round
I'd trade a royal palace for a shack on Puget Sound!
