Washington Wonder

©1973 Dan Scanlan

Washington Wonder, a waterway world
Towering pine tree, run-around squirrel
Quietly deep green, huckleberry red
Bountiful blue lake, rug mulch for a bed.
Rug mulch for a bed.

Sparkling starlight shining on a stream
Fire and water: dandelion dream
Slumbering timber and lumbering sleep
Remembering nights a past that just won't keep.
A past that just won't keep.

Sunspotted woodland, refuge for a soul
Pathways through a man, the walk is the goal
Come to meadow, a flourish of calm,
Wild daisey flowers, bawdy-breaking balm,
Bawdy-breaking balm.
