roll along rock shorelines
and the wood docks shudder as
each roller comes in.
We lake boys cannonball from the docks,
some use inner tubes, some belly flop.
The lake gives her treasures:
floats, canepoles, corks, and
waterlogged live boxes.
We gather them in.
Winnebago boys search the banks,
then huddle under widespread willows,
while the clean scent of fish and weeds
freshen the air.
Along the Shore | Nature and Adventure follow the boy exploring as he grows up in an idyllic setting of Wisconsin. Includes some earlier and longer poems as well.
