THE LAKE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I am a lonely woodland lake
Last Line: And keep them one -- is mine.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb

I AM a lonely woodland lake:
The trees that round me grow,
The glimpse of heaven above me, make
The sum of all I know.

The mirror of their dreams to be
Alike in shade and shine,
To clasp in Love's captivity,
And keep them one -- is mine.
