Imagine Meadowbrook by Avrom Shtern

Imagine sparkling vernal ponds,
shimmering autumnal pools, serpentine streams,
freshwater marsh.
Imagine trill of toad, call of Woodpecker,
howl of red fox.
Imagine woodland flowers and wispy ferns.
Imagine trees like
shagbark hickory, hackberry, cork elm,
black cherry, black willow, bitternut hickory and green ash.
Imagine meadows, hillocks.
Imagine cross-country skiing, snowshoeing,
tobogganing, walking, jogging, biking,
talks about nature.
Imagine breathing in tranquility minutes from the urban core.
Imagine Meadowbrook!
