We’re grateful to Lynne Ann Johnson for sending us a poem she wrote while staying in our French Country Cottage. It’s a joy to us to live in and share a place that inspires poetry. Here’s what she wrote:
This is How I Know
Lodge medicine grows at the front door.
I find feathers while walking Rural roads.
And when I return from sharing silence
with a single sandhill crane atMarlLake
I’m handed a stalk of asparagus
fresh from the garden
that Robert washes in artesian spring water
flowing from a pipe over the trough
orange with native iron and
feeding back onto fertile earth
and into a little cattail marsh.
I am on home ground.
And here is Deb at the door saying, “Stay.”
