First Swim

This is the seventh in a series of poems that we will publish, written by Vincent. This poem is called “First Swim” and was written for “The Bare Facts” Prior Lake Newsletter in 2006. We hope you enjoy it.

Something special,
First swim of the year,
This lake in the forest,
No houses, no cars to be seen
Ravens, eagles, kingfishers,
Ambiance of power in peace
Spirits lifted
Great experience
