From the lake the mist is rising,
It’s autumn, so not surprising.
The water’s like a mirror now,
The morning’s beauty gives a wow!
A little duck swims slowly by,
She looks my way and quacks a ‘hi’.
Such tiny ripples does she make,
Now spreading out across the lake.
Golden leaves glowing in the sun,
Wondrous beauty for everyone.
Water reflects this awesome scene,
Amazing splendor, I do mean.
Viewing all this gives such a thrill,
While sitting here, so calm, so still.
