Studying the natural world of
Classical elements that be four.
Intelligence and ignorance,
Effects are results of causes.
Neglected by man or not,
Creation of the universe as order
Earth and all in it we interact with.
Fanciful stories we tell of
Imaginary folks and places,
Captivating your minds,
Thoughts and emotions.
In times of lax or activities,
Other realms of such tales
Now live with and around us.
Water in the rivers flow about,
Ice on the streets freeze the route.
Never a dull moment here,
Nor a tonne of glee we see.
In Winnipeg, there’s a lot of fun
People do pretend to have,
Especially in subzero degrees.
Gosh, what else can I can say about Winnipeg?
Another fun and silly poem. Winnipeg is the closest I have to a home town. I was born there and lived my first nine years there. One day I’d love to go back and actually participate in all the fun activities and festivals Winnipeg hosts year round.
Chinooks warm the winters here,
And spring does come twice.
Long are the seasons for sports.
Grey Cup winners do live here,
And the Stanley Cup as well.
Rarely do they complain,
Yet Albertans won’t move away.
I’m not much of a sports guy, but here is my acrostic for Calgary. Enjoy.
Sunny summers, we love the heat,
And winters cold, we now in defeat.
Springs and autumns are wet with snow.
Kicking and screaming kids never board;
Always something, fun events they can do.
Tis Saskatoon, city of bridges, ya know.
On the east, as far as the eye sees;
On the west too, too flat is the land.
Never a dull day, here in Saskatoon.
Poems do what they do best;
Occasionally rhyme if they must.
Everyone a critic or love the rest;
Today’s the day a poet you trust.
Read a verse and be a guest;
You, too, can now write poetry.
