state natural area poems #6a and 6b: jackson marsh

6a:

you point feverishly to warblers

as swifts swarm the marsh

trout lily is in bloom

jackson marsh 3

6b:

brilliant flash of orange

breaks over cedar creek:

your eyes against the sky

jackson marsh 2

Jackson Marsh is a southern wet forest with a white cedar-tamarack swamp of 590 acres. Exquisite, and a much needed break from the city… Thanks again to the Wisconsin DNR for watching over this land.
