“The Time of the Blue Canoe” by Dennis McCormack


by Dennis McCormack


Heat fires gifting, old worlds passing

Above us, around us, within us,

Your voice from heaven came

Mixed with painted leaves

On our pathway to the stars

Moonlight partings treat

A favour planned under our feet

For your heart and mine to dwell upon.


Forests appeared at pathways end

Images in waters refreshing.

A striking Blue in your blue canoe

Never seen before or since

Stirring dreams for visits new,

Paddles touching foamy skies,

Chamouni sunrises warming us

Melodies vigor notes unique

Bursting Into silence sweet

Waters splashing over us and smooth rock

At Keji, Beach and Hemlock standing.
