Travel Haiku - Delaware Water Gap


Delaware Water Gap
between our oars and gentle water
a splash dance

Delaware Water Gap
lifted by the winds
our laughter and ripples

Delaware Water Gap
the distant raucous cheer
and gentle ripples

Delaware Water Gap
the landscape carries us
away to its adventures

On the border of northwestern New Jersey and northeastern Pennsylvania, the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area includes 40 miles of the middle Delaware River and almost 70,000 acres of land along its shores. Escape the city heat and get on the water in the Gap. The Delaware River itself, with beaches and boat launches, serves as the centerpiece of recreation-but the surrounding area also offers much more. Rocky cliffs stretch straight up for great climbing; wooded hills pepper the landscape, making for ideal hiking and biking; and streams, ponds, waterfalls, and mountain overlooks provide incredible scenery.

poet Joyce Kilmer

(For the Rev. James J. Daly, S. J.)

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
