Wandering Through, St. Jules-Cascapedia

Wandering Through, St. Jules-Cascapedia

A Poem by Ken e Bujold

Road and river runs

the valley through

a century's rust scars

burrowed into mountain

older than any living


memory of...


the ordered rows

stiff backed parishioners

scattered about the pews


Williams Bill, Lena Lydas

Sarahs Toms Dick and Marthas,

Carrolls, Cormiers, Willetts...


makers of generations

sons and daughters sons

and daughters....


The cabbage patch my grandad

called them.


The joke his

whisper from the

grave

whispers

in the early

morning dew...

Author's Note

Ken e Bujold
The 1st of 3 conceived as a suite, the other two still be wrestled to shape. Have opted to let this one take a stroll on its own, hopefully the other two take note

I love the syntax of the opening line. Grants me the relaxation that I am being led by someone I can trust to know what he is doing.
