Up on the Heights

I walk in other steps
along the top
of the cliff
above the Niagara River
my wife at my side

Isaac Brock and Thomas Moore
strolled on the McFarland farm
long ago now
but before turning hero
and famed poet.

These are gentler times
now, with
overpriced food,
and buses loaded with them
from one wine tasting to another.

We walk
look at the trees
and try to imagine
what it was like
before we have to get back
to reality.
