“Rendezvous the Reunion” by Jeannie E. Roberts

this starry-eyed night

holding firmly
rowing swiftly

across opaque waters

to Mendota’s

language of the lake

rousing softly
soon      soon

silver hair
sparks the darkness

and his zest
won’t rest

until a kiss
has been anchored

upon the lips

of his sweetheart
anxiously awaiting

this summer evening
near the banks
of James Madison Park*

*James Madison Park is a waterfront park located on Lake Mendota in Madison, Wisconsin
