Credit Island Play

                              Dwarfed figure delight
                              those who cross the causeway
                              to visit Credit Island
                              along the Mississippi’s wake.

                             The sun shines on manicured grass
                             where golfers display their strokes
                             and runners circle the island
                             repeating a treasured journey along an asphalt strip. 

                              Taken from floods and neglect,
                              the island renews itself
                              and stands proud for another generation
                              who comes its way.    

                              Long past pelt trader days
                              dwarfed figures take delight
                              in the play of city dwellers
                              and the timeless river swells.
