Wow! Today my singing group, Elder College Singers, sang the song I have created for Canada’s 150th Anniversary. What a thrilling feeling to hear it played and to sing it with the group. I will be posting more about Canada, Our Canada in the near future. So excited! #GIS2017 #EBC #Canada150 #JeanKayPoet

The only activity on the golf course today
apart from the falling snow
is hundreds of ducks beneath the trees
quacking away as they go.
In a long line about six deep
they are trudging along at slow speed
they know the trees will catch the snow
so they can feed on the grass they need.
Good morning beautiful morning
with your picturesque sunrise.
What a lovely way to start my day,
indeed a feast for my eyes.
Once again, deep frost overnight
as our full moon lit the night sky.
This cold spell has lasted long enough,
I want to tell it “Goodbye”.
I’ve enjoyed sunny, clear blue skies,
snow-covered mountains miles away—
North Shore, Gulf Islands, Fraser Valley,
and Mount Baker in the U.S. of A.
These vistas make me realize
how grateful I am to live here,
not far from the sea, on a golf course,
with songbirds and hummingbirds near.
