in which Bonnet’s wife composes a letter to her absent husband.
Featuring Amber Gray, Eliza Poehlman, and Nicole Weiss.

lyrics

Lyrics:

MARY ALLAMBY BONNET:
Dear Bonnet,
My husband,
Your duty to this house and to the King
Have not been altogether pardoned since you left us
Since you left.
You daughters often wonder
Where did father go?
They wonder why their father left,
And your father’s farm has suffered from neglect.
In Barbados I wait upon the widow’s watch
Bereft of husband,
Bereft of son.
The widow’s watch is long for those whose husbands stay at sea
Pace the rooftop, pace the rooftop
Waiting patient for mariners that left so long ago.
Mr. Bonnet, dear husband
Please come home…
Please come home…
Please come home…
