Along the Shore

Winnebago Boys

Lake whitecaps
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.
