down by the dam
manmade mountain
an earthenwork
covered with good
granite scree

my thoughts swirl
in edified eddies
along with refreshing
ideas who have
run the cold river

the snowmelt of minds
coursing down from
the lofty clean peaks
to arrive here and
catch in this basin

where no herons roost
and no moose would
find forage for this
is a place man designed
for himself a placid

retreat for reflection
a place to examine
the epochal wisdom
of nature and assay
how well or how poorly

it mixes and flows with
the knowledge accrued
through our practice
of reason our human
endeavors of intellect

knowing the worst
of our ill-presumed certs
will just sink to the
bottom like so many
unworthy stones
