Chateau Frontenac

On the  cliff
Overlooking
Broad St. Lawrence River
General James Wolfe's
Bold strategy
Scaled its heights
Undefended
Attacked from the rear
Plains of Abraham
French and Indian War
General Louis-Joseph de Montcalm
Surrendered
Quebec City
To dying British commander
Captured in painting
By Benjamin West
From our room
Historic Chateau Frontenac
Dominating
The skyline
Massive and grand
Panorama of the river
Photographed Astrid
Collaged like a Hopper
Absorbing
Language, culture, cuisine
As close to Europe
Ersatz Paris
So it seems
Reached by car
Such rich flavors
Exciting the
Senses
