Fort Kent area....

....Maine, where it's the end of the road for U S route one,
and a place where part of the Winter Olympics are lost or won;
right across the river from Claire New Brunswick,
and it snows all winter, in the spring the ice jams stick.

It's a wonderful place any time of the year,
and had a time in the Aroostook War, there was reason to fear;
the Blockhouse still stands guard on the border,
but now as a museum, things stand in order.
