The poem(s) are below...




They’re in across the lake again

Can’t build a fire worth a damn

But the gasoline flare lights the shore for a moment or two.

Still, they do it year after year

There is some sense of continuity in seeing it each Summer.

I hope they keep it up.

I’ll never teach them to build it right.

And each Summer look forward to the sudden flare

And the eventual sparks and ashes

Climbing through the White Pine branches

Proof that the fire’s finally lit

And that another Summer is here.
