He departed Plymouth, England,
To the vast open sea.
Hoping to forget his life on land.
The wind filled the sails,
Pushing the Endeavor onward
To places unknown.
He watches and waits,
For land up ahead.
He sees what is now known as Young Nick’s Head.
While he meets new friends,
cares for the sick and works aboard the ship
He becomes happy away from his life on land.
He travelled across the sea
Helping to claim new land for the king.
Going to places he had never seen before
But soon there were more people to care for,
And lots of people died.
They were all waiting to return to their lives,
When the Endeavor reached England,
After three long years,
Nick was finally at home.
