ft with oneOn an endless voyage gone 1Night and morning,Hannahs at the window binding shoes. Fair young Hannah,Ben, the sunburnt fisher, gayly wooes ; Hale and clever,For a willing heart and hand he sues.May-day skies are all aglowAnd the waves are laughing so!For her weddingHannah leaves her window and her shoes. LUCY LARCOM May is passing,Mid the apple-boughs a pigeon cooes. Hannah shudders,For the mild southwester mischief brews.Round the rocks of Marblehead,Outward bound a schooner sped !Silent, lonesome,Hannahs at the window binding shoes. Tis November;Now no tear her wasted cheek bedews; From NewfoundlandNot a sail returning will she lose,Whispering hoarsely : Fisher menHave you, have you heard of Ben ? Old with watching,Hannahs at the window binding shoes. Twenty wintersBleach and tear the ragged shore she views Twenty seasons !Never one has brought her any news ;Still her dim eyes silentlyChase the white sails oer the sea!Hopeless, faithful,Hannahs at the window binding shoes.

Her Father's Cider Bar + Kitchen
Image by Metrix X
Yesterday I went to the opening of Her Father's Cider Bar + Kitchen (H.F.). This is a great addition to the bar and restaurant scene Give me cider over beer any day. I'm a fan of French ciders so it's good news that Canadian craft ciders are finally coming of age. On Sunday there is even the Appleseed Cider Festival at the Wychwood Barns.
My personal house cider is Shiny Apple Cider 100% Ontario apples. Watch out for the fake 'craft ' ciders purveyed by the large beer companies. Read the label and you will know what I'm saying about the fake part.
Two new ciders to be exited about:
A sparkling cider from Niagara’s Tawse Winery made with a blend of Ontario apples and fermented with champagne yeast. A dry very sparkling, crisp apple taste with a hint of floral wild flower honey. Most sophisticated cider yet but still true to the cider breed.
K W Thai ginger while not a pure cider would pair well with spicy food or even Sushi
I'm sure I will find many more next time I stop by.
