Ode To Friendship In Leelanau


View From Empire Bluffs Trail


The great hills of the Leelanau, ...

They stand along the freshwater sea.

And it's there, walking in the high woods,

That I would wish to be.

And the friends who were children when I was a child, ...

Walking along with me.

Now that I am a settled man ...

On the path of growing old,

I have built a house with a deep thatch ...

To shelter me from the cold.

And there shall the Leelanau songs be sung ...

And the story of Leelanau told.

I will hold my house in the high woods ...

Within a walk of the freshwater sea.

And the friends who were children when I was a child ...

Shall sit, ... and eat ... and drink with me.


See You In Leelanau Up North,
Chris

                  - an homage to Hilaire Belloc and his original composition, "South
                  Country," - which I have edited with reverence and now dedicate
                  to the Land of Delight, ... with deep gratitude to monsieur Belloc.
