St. Ignace Countryside UP


Winds at dawn, dewdrops lay shivering on blades of green grass;

windows rattle and leaves slide across the veranda floor; cluttered

skies, ice crystals’ a wonderland upon the rocky shore.

A rising sun its radiance spreads, flowers of summer are dead; the

field of Poppies’ only remembered as waving sea of red.

The garden filled with fall fare, blossom seeds tilled into the ground;

spread beyond the garden gates a bounty of squash, gourds and

pumpkins abound.

The land cringes with the thoughts of ice and snow that will soon be

here; but first it must wait patiently for the golden autumn to disappear.
