Brown grizzly bear sits and stares

At this pleasing midnight scene

Fireweed glows at his feet

Like hot coals of evening fire

Thin cloud hovers above green trees

Moist breath from lake below

Sun flares excite atoms to

Shimmering shades of green-red-blue

Wonder Lake reflects this view

Of summer color that Nature drew.
