My Canadian Chronicles 31

Everywhere I go I make lists
of things I have to do when I get home.
Something on my list raises a smile,
but none ever gets a frown.
While speaking to my friend’s partner Ray
he asked me a question which the answer I did not know.
He wondered if we ever get packets
of Cream of Garlic Soup.
If we did, I would send him some.
Another thing to add my list was night stock.
A pretty little flower with a wonderful perfume
that only blooms at night,
as they don’t get it in Calgary.
I said I would get some seeds and send them as well.
Therefore, my little list grows as each day passes
with things I must do when I get home.

To Withstand The Crowd

if all of you shall dance
to be noticed

i wear black

and if all of you are so silent
like zombies
i will scream and to be notice well
i will dress like an angel

if on the stage the three of us are
displayed
you two tumble

A bumpkin's chronicle

He likes her burgundy lips
And he begs for a kiss.
The poor chap really misses
And he regrets of the wild goose chase.
A countrywoman close upon her menopause
Still waits for him with a crack up
And this wild flower beats about the bush.
The naive Goody-goody who walks from the city end helplessly?
And in the semi-darkness of the twilight sky the glimmer of the Starvation star twinkles lazily.
No barriers & restrictions it seems,
The country road always opens for the desperate wayfarers.

To my dearest Denis.Joe..............'Though we never met in this sojourn
Yet I see you in my fading dreams on and off, how strange this life my dear Joe? '

Into my café
Came an out of breath gossip
Told me a story
Napkins turned crimson
But it left without paying

The United States, for a French citizen, is a friend, an ally, to whom we owe, along with most Europeans, our freedom.
