The good thing about Ms Ager's poem, The Lake, is it's very realistic. It's
full of life and the message is clear. There's profound image of beauty in
it and the message of hope and life jibes together "A yard half a
yard...each step is worthy from, well, anywhere." Isn't that great?

A yard half a yard...Thank you Ms. Agers for taking us along as we glanced
the past even while you took time slowing down, so that we could looking
forward wisely count the steps still left us as we approached "The Lake."
Yes, the best words are to be found in the best place. I find them
surrounding "The Lake."
Although I do not as yet consider myself having reached the autumn of my
life I can not help but appreciate the reflections your retrospective
wisdoms shared.
Fall is indeed the season for those preperations learned from earlier
springs, summers. Those offers granted others, clothes... years.
A yard half a yard...each step is worthy from, well, anywhere.
There is balance in the slowing down. Now we can peek over shoulders,
still, while moving forwards.Careful not care-worn.
A yard half a yard, one step left then ones foot
tests...Their own unique, lake waters.
