Did Columbus discover America? No, That’s not right.
But to read what he explored would be a delight.
So let’s read his story that’s full of turns and twists,
Him exploring the world that did not even exist.
The adventure all began in year 1492,
When Columbus set to sail with his crew.
From Spain he started to cross Atlantic,
Hoping to reach Asia and its land gigantic.
He sailed by day; he sailed by night,
All he had was the stars for the light.
The ocean was bigger than shown in map,
It took longer to cross, his men felt trapped.
On October 12 they finally reached land,
Bahamas it was, not India as they planned.
The native Americans were very good,
They gave the sailors spices and food.
Columbus returned safely to Spain,
To share all the knowledge he had gained.
With the quest for Indies still in his heart,
He began a new voyage, made a fresh start.
He never made it to Indies, that is sad,
But explored more of America, Not too bad.
His voyages got Europe and America connected
For that brave Columbus must be respected
Christopher Columbus is one of the greatest explorers,
His voyages have inspired infinite other sailors.
