Have you seen Argyle Lake?
I passed it by often in my youth
On my way to St. John the Baptist High School.
Water of pure transparent azure crystal
Pearl beads crashing against its coastline
Framed by a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ like trellis.
The water carries with it the echoes of yesterday’s youth.
It holds within it generations of adolescent gossip
Respecting yesterday’s privacy.
