Cape Spear, New Brunswick
We're voyeurs from across Baie Verte
watching Nova Scotia's shore,
lights a-blinking from Pugwash to
Later in Port Elgin, New Brunswick
fishermen and their growing tales
hurry across our supper table
about crops, kids, taxes, and of course
lobster fishing flavors the
"250 traps finally tarred,
shameful only eleven fishing boats
now carry on the tradition"
are further thoughts from men
hardened in long years
upon the sea, their heritage.
Millers are a parade of flutters
against our window pane.
