Freshman - 542 Points (West Hartford, CT)

Riverscape - Poem by William F Dougherty

Above the river
by a troupe of yew
a tower broods
in crumbling light.

Burning rust
on an iron bell
glows in the sun
like the color of fox.

A sundial lurks
in a pool of moss,
lifting its blade,
a bearded fin.

A barge of shadows
pleats the river,
hunting rumors
of custodial sea.
