"A Mountain Stream" by Thomas Moran‘Lost and Found’ and Other Poetry by Lucia Haase The Society August 23, 2021 Beauty, Poetry 10 Comments . Lost and Found I’ve lost myself but in the course, I’ve found a sanctuary glowing, aspen golden. To me, I am the stream to woodland bound upon the forest floor midst boulders olden. My water flows as free as eagles soaring above the watching Adirondack mountains. A hemlock’s flitting warbler seems adoring near tamaracks’ cascading ornate fountains. My rushing as this stream is of a kind of joyous surge as one would wish it so, not lulled but quick to savor life aligned with human spirit as through life we go. A breeze stirs… at the stream, I carry on And pass a gently drinking newborn fawn. . . My Mind in Autumn My mind in Autumn makes me want to gaze upon each leaf and branch of every tree in vibrant celebration of the ways that Autumn decorates so splendidly. My mind in Autumn wants to grasp the breeze— invisible yet everywhere and real and capable of rustling the trees, embracing with a cooling, soothing zeal. My wish is this: to savor and reflect what seems to be too wonderful to know and to appreciate what I expect will kindle in my thoughts and often show up in my mind’s eye any time or place to shine with certainty my Father’s grace. . .

I’m taking respite from a two-year stint in the desert and enjoying every leaf, every rustle, every breeze. You’ve encapsulated the experience of such sensory overload wonderfully in just 14 lines. Thanks for the reads from another sonneteer. Reply Lucia Haase August 23, 2021 Thank you so much Paul. Autumn is a very inspirational time for me…my favorite season here in the midwest (Illinois).
