Downtown in December


Downtown has always been a summer friend
Bid farewell to when the days
Grow short with my time
Kensington Sundays long passed
And all those sidewalk patios closed

Still, there are joys for new eyes
Daring cyclists glide on a wake of slush
Cookie-cutter pigeon footprints in the snow
And the snooty Queen Street fashionistas
Surrendered to ski jackets and winter boots.
