If you cut hay all day in Meadows
In Sheave's Cove or in Lawn
Could you Pacquet up in Haystack
Then on Cow Path, be gone?
You may come by chance to Come by Chance
Or find Chance Cove in your wanders
But to bide a while in Bide Arm
You must branch off past Port Saunders
Birchy Head, Black Duck Brook, Puddle Pond, Brighton, Jerry’s Nose, Mad Dog Lake, Barachois Brook, Torrent River Falls, Spirity Cove, Cape Eagle, Trompe l’Oeil Point, Joe Batts’s Arm, Badger, Cape Fox, Nameless Cove, Fleur de Lys, Seal Island Bight, Blow Me Down, Beaver Cove, Lark Harbour, Cape Cormorant, Rose Blanche, Rattling Brook, Nippers Harbour, Trinity Bay, Gander, Tickle Cove, L’Anse-au-Loup, Trouty, Cape St. Mary’s, Witless Bay, Mosquito, Port-aux-Basques, Dildo, Point au Gaul, Fogo, Cupid's, Heart's Content, Mooring Cove, Paradise, Brigus, Bauline, Swift Currant, Englee, Bar Haven, Garnish, Holyrood, Famish Gut, Barneed, Codner, Fortune, Grand Bank, Conception Bay, Goblin, Petty harbour, Bay Bulls, Goulds, L'Anse a L'Eau, Traytown, Heart's Desire, Heart's Content, Codroy, Blow me Down, Placentia, Quidi Vidi, Renews, Salvage, Virgin Arm. My X would go on St. Lawrence.
Yay for Newfoundland! Yay for Canada!ReplyDelete
My blog's disappeared so my temporary home is here!
I think this was a perfectly acceptable substitute. More than that, it was first rate. And you mentioned all my "hometowns". :DReplyDelete
That's an awesome little poem.
I think that was fantastic. Great job on handling "X". It was NOT an easy day.ReplyDelete
Every post makes me drool! Newfoundland is definitely on my bucket list. Thank you, thank you, thank you!ReplyDelete
X is the hardest letter of all, I think.ReplyDelete
What fantastic names!!ReplyDelete
I think you did a fine job for having no real X's to work with. Newfoundland sure has some fantastic place names, and I love the poem you used to introduce the first of them. Fun post!ReplyDelete
I fine poem, using some of the local place names...well done. He, he, he...you said Dildo...that's probably the most photographed place sign in all of Atlantic Canada.ReplyDelete
This was X-tremely creative. Your poem was wonderful. For me, this post was the best one so far.ReplyDelete
Those are some VERY interesting place names!ReplyDelete
I think this was a brilliant way of approaching the letter "X." Bravo! :)ReplyDelete
Xtra creative juices had to flow to make the poem .Kudoes to the first person I've ever met from Newfoundland.ReplyDelete
Xcellent approach. The names of those places--they reflect so many events in peoples' live. Great!ReplyDelete
I was wondering what you'd come up with for the letter "X"!ReplyDelete
Oh you have got to continue this Newfoundland information after this challenge ends!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for checking out my "X's".

I would so love to visit.ReplyDelete
I love crazy town names! You should check out a map of Arkansas sometime. My favorites are Doorknob and Booneville.ReplyDelete
Great town names! When people name things instead of governments, the results are always better...ReplyDelete
I adore the New Foundland vernacular. I just wish it was a little easier to get there. It's quite the journey from down here in New Zealand but one day it WILL happen. Im dying to visit Hearts Desire especially so I can write postcards :)ReplyDelete
I'm guilty, everytime I head out the highway on my way home I giggle when I see the Dildo sign. Score 1 for creative Newfoundland place names.ReplyDelete
If you guys ever do make it to Newfoundland, you'll love it. The weather might not be co operative, but where else can you experence 3 seasons in a day? a little fog never hurt anyone.
thanks again to everyone for dropping in and commenting!
