Who is this?Who is this?
Can you guess?


Through the trees
  you catch a glint of blue.
Behind those forests
  there's something new,
Something unexplored as yet,
Waiting a real accomplishment.
From the surrounding forest
  there bounds a deer;
And out of the water
  a pike leaps clear.
An old bear with her cubs
  shambles off.
And from the forest
  you hear a deer cough.
A loon calls from an island
  near at hand;
An answering cry comes
  from some distant point of land.
In this tranquil spot,
  forest folk abide –
  “waters side by side.”
