Voices from the Past: A.G. Shimmel (1940)

This interesting poem was first published in the May 1949 Pennsylvania Angler. It reminds me of summer.




BESIDE a bubbling mountain stream.

Where stately paper-birches sway

To every vagrant breath of air.

We pitched our tent again today.

And now that night, its shades has spread;

It's good to sit here in the light.

And smell wood-smoke and see the flames

Burn shining holes into the night.

It's good to be back here again

Away from cities lights and sounds.

And hear the voices of the night

As Mother Nature makes her rounds.

-- Dr. Todd
