Upper Lock by Mike Goldstein Curtains by the window,
Crickets by the door,
Loon song haunts the dark of night,
Beaver by the shore.

Dust along the roadways,
Daisies in the ditch.
Potpourri of wildflowers,
Tell me which is which.

Cows between the cornfields,
Barns of bygone days,
Bustling towns and villages,
Quiet lakes and bays.

Motorboats and cruisers,
Cradled in the locks,
Little kids and grandads,
Fishing off the docks.

Turtles sunning on a log,
"Gotta catch those rays!"
These are precious memories;
Our happy Rideau days.
