Remembering the Loons   George’s Pond Maine   June 13, 2022

How Could I have forgotten such lovely creatures?
Their sleek lines, their silent searching for food?
All it took was one call in the night. There you are!
I’d know that call anywhere!

Compelling in a melancholic way, soothing but not subtle.

They sound the night, like stars sound the sky.
Owning the darkness, they call to one another.
Knowing not what they say, I cherish the sound,
Their elegant presence, delights the heart.
See we are not alone!
