Colder Climates Calling

Blizzard

Canada, oh Canada
I hear you beckon me, from afar

In the heat of this city
and its thick humidity

I ponder
What of the weather in Canada?

I look it up
and I do see

A climate designed for me
Eureka, three degrees

Coral Harbor, six degrees
Resolute Bay, three degrees

Even Baker Lake, at ten degrees
Oh what is that?

Celsius?
On Fahrenheit: 37, 42, 37, and 50, see?

I just cannot believe
Eureka!  I have found Eureka

a place that calls to people like me
a place where the winter freeze

stays year round
and all that is left to do

is get directions to you
Eureka, oh Eureka

I never thought temperature readouts could be so poetic.

The whiteness of that image is blinding.
