By The Lake - Constanza

Here by the lake distractions few
My mind feasted on nature’s food
That sets me in a loving mood

The scenes that greets me always new
A perfect place where lovers meet
While some just come to wet their feet

Birdies chirping, grass wet with dew
Squirrels scampering up and down
Dogs stretch their leash their face a frown

All types of fish of different hue 
Swimming around ripples they make
Eating the crumb of children’s cake

In the water so cool and blue
Reflection of a sunny sky
Guys on water bikes splashing by




Here by the lake distractions few 
The scenes that greets me always new
Birdies chirping grass wet with dew
All types of fish different hue
In the water so cool and blue


For Andrea Dietrich contest:  Can you Constanza

    Joy, Congratulations on your placement in Andrea’s “Can you Constanza? Contest.” There were so many really amazing entries we had a very difficult time deciding. We had to go by who followed the form best, and whose poem was most creative. I spent 4 and half hours going over the poems and Andrea, a lot longer. Thank you so much for your wonderful entry Mahalo, Connie
