learning to love Bytown

learning to love Bytown

by Mike Buckthought

because of skating on the canal,
because the canal is surrounded
by parks

because snow is better than rain
because rain thaws much of my town
in the spring

because spring is followed
by summer, and summer brings
bicycling by the canal

because by and by, it becomes
less boring.
