A Poem for Late Summer

Our Lake, Once Named Wennakeening

Our Lake, Once Named Wennakeening

 
 
Rimmed by fragrant pine and tall oaks
Maples orange and gold in fall
Background for its calming waters
Wennakeening calls to us
 
Canada geese by the hundreds
Mallard ducks and one bald eagle
Thirsty deer drink at its shore line
Wennakeening calls to us
 
Named “pleasant” lake by ancient ones
Providing home for hefty bass
Hiding under clustr’ing lilies
Wennakeening calls to us
 
Cooling off in chilly deepness
Sitting on warm sandy beaches
Tending to graves of those passed on
Wennakeening calls to us
 
Summer sun lights dancing water
Blown by everchanging breezes
Stirring hearts to fond rememb’ring
Wennakeening calls to us

(We have just had the same phenomenon – December 21 was the winter solstice.) Originally published on December 21, 2009. It was written by our dear friend and colleague at HollistonReporter.com, Ann Talbot, who died this past fall. Ann, the quintessential teacher, was always willing and able to shed light on a topic, as she does here on seasonal traditions. NF
