Damn It


Damn It pic

There is a valley in the Peace where summer lingers
where the soil is deep and rich
and melons grow sweet and luscious.
There is a valley in the Peace where the corn stands tall
when all around the frost
marches through in frozen hobnail boots.
There is a valley in the Peace.
And they want to dam it.

  1. Mais oui! I buy my melons and other produce at our weekly market. There is a footbridge across the river and it is Paradise!
