Red Lake,
that is your name;

Ikwe of my daydreams.

My anticipation preceded our meeting.
I expected a sunny smile
and a warm embrace.

Instead,

you have turned your
cloudy countenance towards me,
and chilled me in your wintery embrace.

I should never take you for granted.

Will you thaw
before I leave?
Or will I have to tread softly
along your icy byways
for the rest of my visit?
