Silver Lake

Nestled in the upper Midwest
Where the Canadian geese flock-
An awesome sight to behold
When down the path I walk.

Eager to watch and be noticed
The geese sound their little honks,
Waiting for a hand of corn seed
As residents begin the new day.

Looking out into the scenic lake
I take notice of the silver lining,
Reflected by the sun’s shiny light
Of the mid-morning sky of gray.

The sidewalk path near my car
Was filled with goose droppings,
But beyond that mess I had left
The etched memory in my mind.
