The High Lakes

The high lakes, frozen, clear,

Distort reflections of the mountain.

 

Old men with trekking poles

Filter through the forest.

 

All with some form of Achilles

And Homeric hunger pangs.

 

Drawn to recite soliloquies

To the unmoving cold.

 

Return to the parking lot

To winter tires and snow chains.
