not without its icy charms

i detest the cold
sorry to start a poem
on a negative note
but i genuinely
abhor the frigid
weather canada
offers

nevertheless
there are indeed
perks to being surrounded
with a chill in the air
and tons of snow
like for example
maple syrup
candy sticks

for those of you who've
never experienced it -- might
i suggest a trip to quebec during
carnaval -- fresh snow is placed
on a table then this warm taffy
maple syrup concoction is poured
onto the snow -- rolled up around
a popsicle -- oh my goddess
i've hallucinated over
delicate taste of maple
