not knowing the way!

the grace of small things—
stone, wood and water dancing
while the elders sing

Watery Wednesday: Water Wheel


 

Sing a song of lumber,
Coming from the mill,
Lumber for new houses,
Built upon a hill.
 
Sing a song of lumber,
Fresh and fragrant green,
Lumber from the sawmill
With a forest sheen.
 
Sing a song of lumber
For Chemainus town;
Hear the hammers pounding
Up the streets and down.

If you cross the bridge
and turn into the shadows,
then where will you be?

Skillful arms and legs
guide slippery logs to mill
as wild river rolls.

If these craft could talk,
what tales they’d tell of sailing
around the island!
