Mountain Lake Wedding by Bill Anderson

Something in the warming

Of rock and ice by sun

Speaks to us of love,

Allows our tears to run.


Something in the river's

Smooth caress of stone

Teaches tenderness

As we lie down together

Bone to bone.


Something in the sunlight

On the waters mirrored face

Reminds us of home,

A pilgrimage, a place.


So too, your quickening breath

As you stand before each other's eyes

Stirs a breeze in our own hearts

That sweeps us clean

Before it dies.


And now, beneath tall pines

That stretch from earth

To greet the moon,

Your promise echoes silently

Across the lake,

"Soon my love, soon".
