The Wide Country Horizon – Poem

A second poem from Canada. This is from our second day of travel, when we spent time in Winnipeg and caught the Greyhound Coach.

The Wide Country Horizon

The wide country horizon,
Water colour trees and lake,
Roads laid to gridded paper,
And Arnold’s Dauphinite mind.
Manitoba, you are kind;
Smiles, Motor Inn to Greyhound.
Hot cakes and syrup and sleep,
Gopher Park – Assiniboine.

UK’s copied your dinked coin,
And it spends well, slots and plates
Across Winnipeg, till time
Taps a shoulder and we go.
Thanks, Twinbearer for your show
Of conversation to us,
Strangers by the bus who sought
The wide country horizon.
