state natural area poems, supplementum #1 a and b: bratt woods

this ad hoc project, dreamt up to stave off cabin fever during the safer at home order in wisconsin, is too good for my soul to limit solely to official state natural areas any longer—the river has overflowed its banks to other places we’re going, so here’s “supplementum #1,” a and b.

 

the trout lily’s retired for the year

trillia haunt the ridges

heart speaks to heart

bratt woods #1

lurking the mudstones

carp ride the tide

tanagers look on in silence

 

Bratt Woods is a 17-acre nature preserve managed by the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust. A trio of scarlet tanagers and the an all-points circle of oriole song high in the canopy were highlights of the trip.

Thanks to the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust for keeping this land.
