Georgian Bay

I didn't remember it being so far
Or the trail being quite so rough.
The rocks and roots impeded the way
And the steepness made it tough.

The light was fading very fast
And the rain began to fall
But I knew we had to be close to our goal,
So I pushed them, one and all.

Till just as the sun was setting
We left the pines and dark,
And emerged on the rocky, light-dazzled bay.
With the waves crashing loud and stark.

Georgian Bay at sunset,
A magnificent, awesome sight,
It fills the heart, the mind, the soul,
In spite of the coming night.

We trudged through the darkened forest,
Heading back to camp and sleep,
But our minds were full of the memory
of the Great Lake, wild and deep.
