This Inside Passage Legendary Map poem was written as a “rhyming riddle” to enhance the lyric voice on the map. It is placed in two line segments in the cameos around the border of the Inside Passage Legendary Map. One of the extra detailed features of the map – is to be able to figure out the order of the verse in the border of the map.
Words like petals – Form a poem;
Flower blooms – Then bows her head.
Sheds thoughts upon the ground ~
Moss – Prepared – Has made a bed
Poetic petals flutter down.
Depart from proud, stately stems
‘Til Nature has them land
Bathed in dew – Just humble gems.
Nature inspires deep respect,
Sweet pot-pourri recants…
Woods are made fresher yet ~
For the poet-pourri – Enchants.
