Damariscotta Lake

Common Loon (Gavia immer) - adult male with chick (c) Larry Master

Common Loon – adult male with chick (c) Larry Master, masterimages.org

Do the loons tell their children
stories of this lake?
Do the stones remember the glacier?
In the clay, clamshells from
ten thousand years —
do they dream of the ocean?
Do we remember the time
before there were stars —
before there was light?
