‘Old Saugus Town, As Wide As It Can Be’ By Thomas Sheehan

My hometown has blessed me with its open arms at arrival from elsewhere as a child, on my return from a Korean combat zone, allowed parts of 8 years spent at the reconstruction of the First Iron Works in America, now a National Park, and have lived in a house built in 1742 for nearly 90 years of my 94 years on this rare Earth.
