A Lake Superior Poem

January 4, 2010


 

I learned how to find agates on the shore of Lake Superior.  Here is an excerpt from The Wilderness Within:

 
 
 
Agate, A Gate

Go to the beach at Grand Marais
to watch the small stones roll.

Surf slants in

licks and slicks and clicks the stones

sometimes casts up bones

and out and in again:

black, brown, bronze Lake Superior stones,

pudding, Petoskey, quartz,, greenstone, copper.

Folded carnelian, amethyst, jasper, opal.

So choose a stone made of star stuffa rosy stone veined with blue—
maybe you’ll find the stone is a gate

when held to the setting sun.
