This Place Where We Live ~ "Three Sisters" - Poem


"Three Sisters"
oil
36" x 36"

There’s a legend of the lake that’s told
A story of sisters three
Who lived with their father long ago
A loving happy family

Surrounded by pines reaching high to the skies
A place to explore and roam
Where waters lap upon rocky shores
Rainy Lake they called their home

He loved his daughters and taught them well
Stay safe my saplings three
Look to the skies – she’ll show the way
And bring you back to me

That fateful morn, out they did go
Paddling this lake they loved so well
When caught in a storm they lost their way
Did fell deep into waters swell

The lake spirit knew them and their love of this land
Then thought of their father too
Gently gathered the saplings in her hands
Now three islands surrounded by blue

It is said when you travel there today
You can feel an aura of love
Three Sisters standing tall and proud
While eagles soar high above

Some see him paddling ‘round here still
Their loving father by their side
Casting flowers along these rocky shores
Where daughter’s spirits three abide

 I would like to thank all who came out to the opening of "This Place Where We Live". It was a wonderful evening with many turning out to see what myself and fellow artist Wayne Yerxa have been up to this past year. A big thank you to our families and friends who have supported us in our life's work. We couldn't do this without you! We also received great support from B93 FM,  the Fort Frances Times and the Ontario Arts Council. Thank you!
The Ontario Arts Council is an agency of the Government of Ontario
