December 7: Back home

After being away
for several days the cat
wanders the house crying.

December 6: Basilica Ste.-Anne de Beaupre

Kangaroo, stork, ray--
surprised to find a zoo carved
on the end of the pews.

December 5: Cold morning in Quebec City

Cal├Ęche horse wears a coat.
A shop's bare-armed mannequins
make me shiver.

December 4: Vieux-Quebec

Above the cold river,
above the lit-up Chateau,
slim moon rising.

December 3: First snow

A kid again
waking just after dawn
to see winter's first snowfall.

December 2: Green Mountains

Driving northward through Vermont--
where Camel's Hump should be
only thick clouds.

December 1: Dark

First day of advent:
the nights still grow longer.
Let's turn on all the lights.
