High on his shoulders

In the arms of a priest, entrusted his motherless
Son, while he walked on to Cadiz.

Of Spain. He spent seven pleading years
Perched on her sofa, waiting for Moors to end their war.

Eventually he got tired of waiting, was
Ready to Leave. He started toward

Urgently pressed to return. The Queen
Made Christopher Columbus a commissioned
Boon allowing the
Underwriting of three ships. Two weeks later he set
Sail on a voyage to discover the World.
