    Lake Cane – By Joe Mattern

    I Am The First One In
    And The Last One Out
    Together We Win
    And I Have No Doubt

    I Am So Blessed
    To Have You In My Life
    In You I Excel
    Thinking As Clear As A Bell

    I Am A Better Man Because Of You
    And For That, Thank You!

    Life of the Lake – By Shawn Berg

    your splashing towards me with a breeze
    Hoping to call me to the waters Edge
    I dip a toe
    But must walk away until the morning

    Poem 1
    “Woof woof, the Lucky swimmers!”
    Was there a one dismayed?
    Not though the swimmer knew
    someone had blundered.
    Theirs was not to make reply.
    Theirs was not to reason why.
    Theirs was just to swim or die.
    Into the Lake of Cane swam the six.

    Poem 2
    Gators to the right of them.
    Lampreys to the left of them.
    Pi-ranners in front of them.
    Flashed and gnashed, and roared.
    Driven at with tooth and claw.
    boldly they swam, and well.
    Into the Jaws of death.
    Into the mouth of Hell.
    Swam the six.

    Poem 3
    Flashed all their forelimbs bare.
    Flashed as they turned in air.
    Stroking through the gators there.
    Charging a swarming school,
    while all the World wondered.
    Plunged in the frothy choke.
    Gator bones and teeth lay broke.
    Pi-ranner and lamprey
    reeled from the freestyle stroke.
    Shattered and sundered

    Lake Cane – Lucky’s Lake Swim – By Mia Erickson Stevens

    Early in the morning,
    When the water is calm,
    I’m ready to swim,
    Just past the palm.

    Swim cap is on,
    With my goggles in hand,
    I put my toes in,
    and feel the sand.

    The Lucky’s Lake swimmers,
    Take off with a dash,
    Swimming across the lake,
    With very little splash.

    A great way to start,
    Your day at sunrise,
    By experiencing outdoors,
    Is the greatest prize.

    We inspire, we create, when I hit the water, I feel my fate. The creatures don’t scare me, I am free. The fact that there’s other people doesn’t bother me. I am swimming happy, down at Lucky’s Lake, where the gators don’t frighten me. This is my journey to make.

    ‘O’ Lake Cane’

    O’ Lake Cane
    How I Love Thee
    Let Me Count The Waves

    Your Bass’y
    Your Glassy
    Your Classy
    And Oh So Sassy!

    I Am The First One In
    And The Last One Out
    Together We Win
    And I Have No Doubt

    Your The Best Free Gift
    I Could Ever Receive
    I Simply Believe
    I Never Want To Leave

    I Once Dreamed Of The Sea
    Where I Wanted To Be
    However, You Hold The Key
    To Help Me, Be Me!

    While Lucky Is Truly Lucky
    I Too Am Lucky To Have You
    Full Of Animals From The Zoo
    Who? You!

    I Am So Blessed
    To Have You In My Life
    In You I Excel
    Thinking As Clear As A Bell

    Soon We Will Be Together, Forever
    Feeling As Light As A Feather
    Because In You I Feel Better
    Which Is Why I Write This Letter

    You Help Me Inspire & Motivate
    Out Of Respect, I Am Never Late
    Why? Because You Rate!

    In You, I Lost Weight
    I Am A Better Man Because Of You
    And For That, Thank You!

    There was a fine swimmer named Luck
    A quick young man with a buck
    He opened his place
    To all who would race
    Then he bested them all with his duck

    The greatest choice
    We get to make
    Is how and where
    We spend our time

    May our lives be
    A pursuit of joy
    Full of joy, love,
    Laughter, and rhyme!

    There is a place
    Where dear friends
    Can always
    Be near

    A place where
    The water is great
    No matter the
    Time of year!

    Lake Cane is
    The lake for
    The kind, the wise,
    And the bold!

    A home to
    Stupendous swimmers
    Whether you’re 8 or
    80 years old!

    Every moment
    Of every season
    No moment
    Is dim!

    The happiest
    People on Earth
    Are peolpe
    Who swim!

    Our pursuit can be
    A pursuit for more
    When we’re joined on
    Our endeavour

    The greatest moments
    Of our lives
    Are when we choose
    To be together!
