muehl springs is largely a sedge meadow formed by springs, with some woods nearby. the whole is situated on rolling ground moraine and very near the more dramatic interlobate moraine that features so dominantly in the area.
it was a nice, quiet visit with mushrooms, mayapple, and lots of sedge.
birch and oak share
a sloping glacier’s gift
of gravel and ten-thousand years
the sedge-maze and cattail alleys
we defer to crane and goose—
redwing flashing trill
