Love Of Lakes
by Philip F De Pinto
I suppose it is my fate
To have what it takes
To have a love of lakes
Loving one in particular upstate
The more you go
Immersing yourself in it
Chin to toe
Thereby sanctifying it
In some way unclear to me
But it sustains me
To watch you steep in it
Which doesn't need honey
Because honey you're it!

Nice, Phil. A quaint poem for a quaint lake me thinks.

Well, just plain charming. Love the chin to toe immersing and the use of the word "sanctifying."

My favorite phrase: "to watch you steep in it." You have a way of stimulating our senses at the same time as our souls. Beautiful piece, Phil.
