A Jewel

Richard & Esther Provencher

In 1963-64 I was a senior Scout Leader at this HSR Haliburton Scout Reserve Campground in Ontario.

A Jewel

Among a forest of green
Kennabi kingly rests
as tall wind-soaked trees
stand whispering still

and near his stately shore
the water floods6

Below pine-dotted ridges
rushing can be audibly heard
of dancing water that slap-slaps
at the foam-studded shore.
