“LITTLE ACRE POND”

pond2

… So near the fence line,

Edge of woods, like shrine,

There was an acre pond,

Compelling, mysterious, profound!

… Climb up incline-

Of dirt and rocks’ chine,

Through bushes or skies,

Exasperating with cries!

… There I see the pond, With few stones around;

And some grass;

And leaves and twigs with class-

Have docked in the pass…

…A gray old pass, no ducks or fish;

An old guardian maple tree’s wish-

Standing tall, bent, gnarled, not on leash!

… On lingering, looking deep-

Little acre pond, unspoiled for keep-

Compelling, mysterious, it does peep!! …

Waterlily pond with little stone bridge
