The following poems have been written by the 2020-2021 Greater Sudbury Poet Laureate, Vera Constantineau:


within the rings
of a million trees
our future grows

deep in the mines
another kitchen sink
is excavated

measure the length
of a pickerel's backbone
lines set deep on lakes

songs of children
living on the street
speak their truth

raindrops or snowflakes
the sky will decide
what we get

the brilliance
of a northern sunset
lights the need for change

memories comfort
but the future for us all
lies in our dreams
