Covetous In Leelanau

Beach  At  South  Manitou  Island

I envy these majestic dunes,

This vast freshwater sea,

The rolling woodlands and meadows ....

Long after I am gone,

And just a memory,

They will go on ...

To feel the warm of the sun,

The cool of the rain.

The fresh of the breeze.

Long after I am gone,

And just a memory.

As they enjoy permanence

At the expense of life,

I enjoy life ... 

At the expense of permanence.


I wonder ...

Which of us

Has the better deal.
