Beautiful Pitch Pines, Sycamores, and Black Oak, border winding sandy trails,
Bygone Cranberry Bogs are fed and nourished by a whispering brackish creek,
Dragonflies hunt and share their airspace with meandering Black Swallowtails,
Where in the forest, Tree frogs, Warblers, and Barred Owls boldly speak,
Water-lillied lakes are bordered by White Cedars, Blueberry bushes, and Bronze Cattails,
While Belted Kingfishers, and Blue and Green Herons fish with elegant beaks!
