Gronlid school wrote me from Gronlid, Saskatchewan. GRONLID! -- What a wonderful word! I had to use it in a poem.

The Gronlid,
As everyone knows,
Is a serious Sasketchewan
Monster that shows
Itself from under the lid
Of a grain elevator,
And pulls kids in
The grain.
Whence the train
Takes them to be ground
To bread,
Once they are dead.
A horrible Gronlid fate
Those with dates
At the grain elevator.
So say “See Ya Later”
To the Grain Elevator!
Don’t Wait!
Avoid a Gronlid Fate.
