By Peter C. Goldmark, Jr.
Adirondacks roll and stretch
As if space was infinite
In New York.
Two Great Lakes, canals cut by man,
Long Island Sound, St. Lawrence Seaway –
Our circulatory system.
Veil of peace over
Creativity and enterprise –
Under the cold blanket
Of winter in Albany
Massing, gleaming, foaming,
Soaring, tumbling, thundering –
