CHANG­ING SEA­SONS

More of Our Canada - - Writer's Block -

Yay, though I walk through the throws of this win­ter,

My drive, my spunk, my spirit won’t splin­ter.

The weather out­side is some­times so fright­ful,

But won’t last for­ever, of this, I’m quite mind­ful.

The weather­man says that our cold snap is over;

Yet a good lit­tle while ‘fore we roll in the clover.

A cou­ple more months of the cold and the snow,

Then we slide into spring­time, can’t wait, let’s go!

Then we ease into sum­mer, my favourite sea­son;

The sun, warm temps, they are quite pleasin’.

After the sum­mer, comes fall in all splen­dour;

And right on her heels, the sea­sonal en­der.

That’s what it is to live in the north,

Spring, sum­mer, fall, win­ter re­peat after the fourth.

We’re a hearty bunch, may even live longer

‘Cause what doesn’t kill us, just makes us grow stronger.

Dwight Don­aghue, Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.
