Dear Door County

Dear Door County I sing to your shores bounded by rolling tides. I sing to Death’s Door where Green Bay and Lake Michigan meet. I sing to your grief about sailors lost. I sing to the ships your sons make in Sturgeon Bay. I sing to the canal where you set them free. I sing to the lighthouse showing the way. I sing to the bed and breakfast in Egg Harbor where tourists meet. I sing to the Maritime Museum where you tell your stories. I sing to your daughter who tells me your ways. I sing to your forests rising from the land. I sing to my visions and dreams as if I never left your shores.

Mike I really love how you did this. Was it meant for Carolyn's contest, because if it is, it needs to have fewer lines, but you could easily fix that. It would make a perfect entry to Carolyn's contest!!
