state natural area poems #30: genessee oak opening and fen a, b, & c


steady whistle blast of train

over the fen, down the moraine

cold wind searches bone


our oaks grow along branching lobes

november biting hands and face

genesee creek smiles under their arms


my boys chirrup

over trail muck


genesee oak opening and fen is a fantastic plot of land with interlobate moraine topography and an oak savanna, woods, a fen and disturbed wetland in the eastern portion, and genesee creek lolling thru-out. a very brisk and windy day greeted us, but made the march and climb all the sweeter.
