Teen Ambassador inspired by Voyageurs National Park, pens poem


Bright blue is the sky
Soft white are the clouds
Red intense, is the sunset
Passions sleep in Kabetogama’s heart

Water, Air, Fire, and Land
I come back to life
In the majesty of Kabetogama’s paradise
That makes me feel close to the sky

The green trees
The senses of life
Spontaneous feelings
Flying over the sky

Fresh breeze
Quiet and alone
Sitting over the rock
Softly the waters float

Red sunset
Vivid color
In the sky
Peaceful moments in my eyes

The sound of the lake
Swinging at night
Makes me sigh
And feel alive

Fresh morning
Hot afternoon
Cold night
And the constellations in the sky

The moon, the lake and the stars
How wonderful is life!
Free as the eagle
I hope one day to fly

Hiking through the path
Serenity and peace surround
I found faith and light
To my spirit lost in the dark

Silent green forest
In persistent calm, the lake sings
Picturesque moment
That Kabetogama land created in my heart
