There is a place on water’s edge
Where mind and nature meet.
It’s on a lake where land’s hooked wedge
Have lodge and water greet.
Each lodge abounds with cabin’s peace;
With silence silent through the night
Until, the dawn’s new light’s release
And morning’s sounds are fresh and bright.
A mist evolves from water’s heat
To fog the lake’s dawn’s peaceful claim,
But soon the sun will beam its treat
And shine the surface glass again.
All that I see is in my mind
From memories of my visit there,
But I would wish that all humankind
Could have this comfort everywhere.
