Lake Michigan at Night
By Scharmel Iris
THE LAZY ships all lazy lie,
Quiet against the quiet sky.
The little silver ship-lights make
A play of wonder on the lake.
A mist of smoke that blurs the air        5
Is washed with silver everywhere;
The silver moon, a silvering rose,
Upon the silvered water glows.
Each window on the avenue
Hangs out a star for me and you.        10
The silvery winds of dusk awake
A flute of silver on the lake.
