Dec 2020

Maudie did it...

Not I.
I just present it to you here...
In all its joyful mien.
But then
Presented it first
So I'm really
Passing on her
Special Delivery.
Produced by
Canada Post
In honour of the season
In honour of Nova Scotia's
Own folk artist,
Maud Lewis.
She, whom the movie
Maudie made visible
To the many of us
Who had been
Bereft without
Even knowing it.

Now we can be
Joyous folk,

Hélène L’Heureux
Designed stamps
And souvenir sheet
For Canada Post.
I did nothing but
Add this month's
Calendar and postmark.
Thank you Hélène.
Thank you Canada Post.
Thank you Maud.

May your own
Winter scenes be filled
The the warmth
Of folks both
Inside your bubble
Folks far flung.
And cats, too.
Don't forget the cats.

If this isn't nice, what is?
