It was toward the end of July, and Fredericton, the little
New Brunswick capital, had grown
hot beyond endurance, when six devoted canoeists
— Stranion, Magnus, Queernian, Sam, Uanolf, and myself
— heard simultaneously the voices of wild rapids
calling to them from afar. The desire
of the woods awoke in us. The vagrant blood
that lurks in the veins of our race sprang up and
refused to be still. The very next day we fled
from the city and starched collars, seeking freedom
and the cool of the wilderness.

It was toward Lake Temiscouata and the wilds
that we set our eager faces. In shirt-sleeves and
moccasins we went. For convenience we had our clothes
stitched full of pockets.
Our three good birch canoes and our other
impedimenta we put on board a flat-car at the station.

Time's but a golden wind that shakes the grass...
