Klopp Lake 1/31/2020



A midwinter sun through the clouds doth peek;
White egrets decorate a tree, at rest.
Shore birds and ducks on the water, seek,
Food as they dive and bob in their quest.
Buds on a branch portend early spring
And give one a sense of hope and gladness.
Evoking such a desire to sing,
Rather than contemplate social madness.
Reflections of mountains mirror the bay;
Walkers on trails with their dogs, besotten.
Providing for all a glorious day;
Cares and woes for the moment, forgotten.

Lori Cole
