A Jewel

Amid a forest of green
Kennabi kingly rests,
and near his stately shore
the water floods,
gently licking its way
at the land,
and comes slap, slapping
at the Haliburton shore.

The tall wind-soaked trees
stand whispering still;
over low slung, pine-dotted ridges,
the rushing can be audibly heard,
of dancing water that slap, slaps
at the foam studded shore.
