From the Introduction:
These poems grew from a desire to capture in words what that relaxed, meditative lakeside experience is like, and what it does for the body and soul. There are forty-seven distinct poems, reflecting varied moods, feelings and experiences. On the other hand, the entire series could also be viewed as a single, long, multi-part love poem to Lake Michigan, many years in the making.
