view of the lake

calm
could never
be so calm
if i could hold it
in my palm,
if i controlled it
like a king
or stored it
in my secret ring
if it were up to
me to say
it shall be nice
and calm today
calm is cool
where it belongs
in peaceful minds
and soothing songs
in any place
where people rest
and on the lake
where it looks best
