To find solace from misty tides that curve,
In low beats gently weaving their way
Along the coastline where our town rests:
This aging lake I knew as a girl
Is now draped with crumpled lily pads,
Against night’s advancing shade. I heave…

Yet, the clear music of waves endure
All trespasses from environ's care;
Chanting the legends of time's folklore
Much like a rhapsody warbling stories
Passed from one era to the next:
This water- bend filled with salt of love, death
As I listen to its undulated psalms---
Still beautiful in a  wilting habitat,
Knowing my lake resides in my inner world.

END JULY PREMIERE CONTEST OF Brian Strand

Congratulations nette on POTD. Sad how the places we used to go have changed, physically. We go and it looks nothing like our memory. Beautifully done:)

So much changes from childhood. My road was all broken up. It was like a scene from back to the future. Yet, we find solace, somewhere in a portion that lives on. Nice write, Nette!

Very emotional and I related to the feel of something special being 'changed', but not for the better. I enjoyed this, Nette - very much, it has a tenderness underlined in faith ... CayCay

Incredibly lush poem! Despite waters' debris, the river's music , its sound and trill remain pure for us to savor a ride back home.
