Lake Durant - Poem by Velvet Thorn

In the morning's chill
Blue Mountain cuts through the mist
That covers the lake like a featherbed.

Clad in fleecy jackets
Three children crouch on an island rock
That draws the ducks to share their breakfast.

Remembering the evening
Lake sunset soft with calls of loons
I watch the children in the mist

And feel peace.
