not all those who wander are lost

A strange little monument on Belle Isle, to Samuel Francis Smith – author of ‘America’, a horrible little ditty known to American school children as “My Country, Tis of Thee”.

In reality, Mr. Smith unwittingly rewrote lyrics to a tune better known in Britain as the national anthem, “God Save the Queen”. Hahahaha !
