LITTLE CARMEL
-Wesley Pence

Try to trace the roots along
Melungeon family tree
Each branch divides in triad
Settler, slave, Cherokee

Outcast, exiled, miles behind
Some seaside colony
Legend holds in manifold
Dash Turk or Portugese

LITTLE ENGLISH, LITTLE DUTCH
LITTLE COLORED, JUST A TOUCH
LITTLE GIBSON, LITTLE GOINS
LITTLE CARMEL IN THE LOINS

An encampment still, just as before
One flashing light, old general store
They say the Musics up and left
They've left and gone away

Washburn's Mountain
Rocky Fork Creek
Land providing, bountifully
Homestead here to live in Peace
