Quadrille: When Nature Gives Us Poems


lr-1270170 ww


one day of warm
can melt all the snows

seals bask in the sun
calling their pups

watched by a cormorant
on a pole in the river

cast your net to
capture the sounds

follow your gaze

feel nature give poetry
in her making

kelp rests
on sand and polished stones
from river and sea
seals glide through water
a place we all can be
