Silver Expanse

A great silver expanse

Like the sky at dusk,

But upon the group outstretched


Lies silvery, shimmering,

Sparkling, rippling,

Shining and beaming, those waters


A soft, silky veil

Covering darkness beneath—

Completely concealed at the hour

Silvery Lake





But as the sun slips away,

Taking with her gold rays,

Murky waters beneath are revealed.


Splashing, slipping,

Rippling, swirling,

Down, down, deeper and deeper
Silvery Lake at Dusk
