Frenchman’s Pier

Frenchman’s Pier

How sublime it would be to have lived here as a child;

to amble out on Frenchman’s Pier to cast a line,

or, in the early morning, hear the tide softly

brush the marsh grass of the Little River’s gentle shores.

 

Oh, what it would have been like to take my skiff

to explore Susan Point and Stanwood Point

and keep going beyond Biskie Head into the

Annisquam – and from there – from there, anywhere!

 

A place where I could steer a course in a summer breeze

that never ends and see foreign lands and

mountains and magical islands, all while on

my back, gazing up from Frenchman’s Pier.
