The Buried Town of Singapore

June 23, 2010


 

poem excerpted from the book

 

 

The buried town of Singapore once hummed

with life, but now no more.

And what do the singing sands say

of streets and houses below the dunes?

Ask the west wind

the intimate wind may know.

Ask Lake Michigan’s waves

or the river that flows to the sweet water seas.

Go ask the wild rose.

* Singapore is now called Saugatuk
