Memories Of Stow Lake (poem)

Remember the day we spent on Stow Lake

Just music of you brought warmth to the day

And mood in your eyes left little to say

So soft we did float on love’s gentle wake


Stow Lake’s placid pallet water so clear

Drew dreams of enchantment as we held tight

So fragrant a breeze made passions alight

The world beyond you would soon disappear


And wonder of wishes Stow Lake made true

As whispers and secrets were loosed on waves

A timeless forever finds what it craves

And all that remained were heartbeats of you


We once had a dream we couldn’t apply

So day on Stow Lake in sleep it would die

I suppose, we see only what we want to see, and believe only what we want to believe.

We remember, not what was, but what we chose to remember.

Allusive and mysterious as always, my friend.

I love the imagery I was able to capture of love at Stow Lake. I really enjoyed the video, an artist I plan on investigating. Jamie

That is just so beautiful and so aptly describes the wonders and passion one can find at the lake. I love it. Thank you.
