inland

mississippi
and greatest lake
redeem us from
this landlocked state
the salty sea
so far from reach
ten thousand pools
provide us beach
and dogged ice
returns to wave
our shores reborn
with waters lave

Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’ John 7:38
