Harry Howie
Scottish Immigrant
Traveled aboard theAquitania
Arrived October, 1948
 
Pier 21- 16.5.2014
 
It was a
rough crossing
 
their landing
delayed by fog
 
& darkness.
Four of them
 
traveled inland
knowing nothing
 
of this land now
theirs. A
 
lifetime later
the sole survivor
 
returns to
this place bearing
 
witness to
an act of courage
 
recorded now
on fragile paper
 
& on the surface of
a human heart.
