Creature of the Lake

Lake+Quinault%2C+Washington%2C+by+Wendy+Brannon
Lake Quinault, Washington, by Wendy Brannon

Oh, dear Creature of the Lake, 

I dropped a rock into your domain,

as I stepped, and it disturbed your peaceful waters. Beloved,

please don’t take revenge; no stern acts of vengeance, of you I beg.

Oh, esteemed Creature of the Lake,

It was an accident, I swear, 

please, don’t drag me in.

Your home is cold. I’m not a strong swimmer.

Oh, exalted Creature of the Lake,

You canand shouldgo back to sleep with your

drowned logs, and persisting fish.

I won’t disturb you any longer.

Signed, your humble, troublesome, lowly servant,

Child of the Sky.
