"Winter Cometh"
Pilgrims starving
Winter cometh.
Indians helping
Horn of plenty.

Squanto sits with Alden; Pricilla stares.

Corn, squash, lobster, tables laden.
Smoking alewives, fowl and beer.

Fortune sails with skins and clapboards,
London merchants want a sale.

Narragansetts eye the land.
Arrows in a snakeskin send.
Bradford sends back skins of bullets,
Pokanoket's peace will hold.

Squanto says, "I don't think you want to use that -- Pilgrim"
Quahog shells make more a profit,
Wampum beads for skins and furs,
Apples, grapes and bogs of berries.
Clear the woods for corn and cattle.

Leaves turn colors,
Brave new world.
