Tacet Lake by Samuel Anthony

Tacet Lake

 

When the cabin grew too warm

I went to tacet lake

To run three times around its edge

And hear blue bottles break.

 

Cause Papa Bear had had too much

And what was I to say?

I thought I’d never once relive

His troubles on that day.

 

But time has passed and now I am

Far from those waters deep

And who am I to thank, I ask

When love I cannot keep?

 

“It’s not enough to try,” she says

(My liver numbs her call)

 

As a man I’ve tried to learn these things

But as a child I learned them all
