Ontario's Not as Far From Home as I Thought

Ontario's Not as Far From Home as I Thought


Ambling along down Yonge Street ,
In my boots and and old felt hat,
I feel just a tad,  conspicuous,
City folks don't dress like that!

 In farming country east of here
 where we visited for a while,
The folk we met were just like home
with rural ways and a ready smile.

Among the pretty farms and rolling hills,
Just North of Quinte' Bay,
We shared songs and poems of the West,
and made new friends along the way.

But even in this bustling city,
Though it's hard to fathom why,
A fellow walked up with a big ol' grin saying,
" Hey you're the poet guy!"
