En Passant

Just passing

But eager to absorb

Some things of life

And common ground

Common I ask?

They are French

And there have been tensions

Leaving our Dominion?

Taking with them

Language and history

Hockey and cuisine

Music and colour

Celine and the Rocket’s memory

But then they thought again

And new dialogue

And new engagement

And they love conversation

Much more

And fine wines

And fashion du moment

And laughter

Often tweaking

Their own noses

And vivacious debate

And winter’s joys

At thirty five below

More than neighbours

Or hosts for a week

They are us…and staying

In the mix.
