Here up north the air is cleaner.
Autumn wind blows cold and clear,
Making all the senses keener
As the waning days grow leaner,
And long winter nights draw near.
Here the evenings last much longer
When the summertime has come.
Day by day the light grows stronger.
On the tundra, great herds wander,
Guided by the midnight sun…N.McAllister
Here is the solitude, the feeling of vast emptiness, that is the wonderful Canadian north…Watercolour on Arches Not Paper
