Town of Fogo - Poetry

Having spent his whole life on Fogo Island, Lewis Payne has many stories to tell about the region. These stories from the past give shape to a way of life that’s very different than the one that exists there now. Lewis' poem Part of the Story of My Life chronicles his personal history, including details about his life as a fisherman.
