Sonnet for a Shag Lake Visit

First Quatrain

While winter's water at Shag ran high.

And the Forties harvest was made complete,

The garden of Harlan and Mom and was nigh,

Emily her betrothed did meet.

Second Quatrain

Poppa declared the lake is like glass,

The Escanaba became a property line,

Mom assuredly captured the bass,

And the Neumann reunion was particularly fine.

Third Quatrain
Smoked turkey and chubs fed the clan
And a fish fry of bluegills, not undersized bass.
Electric hot water is in the plan
After talking and talking about liquefied natural gas.

Final Couplet

Departing we left Ladyslippers still shy.

While turtles basked under a sun filled sky.
