Port Washington, MI
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Quentin Clingerman
Other Poems by Quentin Clingerman

The town is quaint, age showing here and there
A small port on Lake Michigan
A tourist's dream of lakeside living

Port Washington, too cold yet when I was there
For the weekend sailor
Thus a quiet ambience filled the air

The old buildings, church spires, and homes
Must have stories of olden days of lake trade
Of fishermen and schooners loaded with fare

As I looked out my second story window over the street below
It was a bit like being there
Watching the bustling thoroughfare of old

But it was too cold this May evening to venture out
The wind had blown briskly all day
It was time to settle down to some modern TV
