THE LAKE

Fed by Niagaras' roar
Empt'd by St. Lawrence flow
From West to East
And North to South
The lake lies brooding
Grey and cold
On Summers day
A pure delight
In Winter storm
A place of fright
A giver of life
A taker of same
The lake resists
Mans' will to tame
Born by the Glaciers
Grinding slow
Pushing the Earth
Like a giant plough
Filled by water
From ice melt streams
Place of Legends and
Explorers' dreams.
Ontario, from the
Mohawk take
And give the name to
This Great Lake.

Camac,
Lake Ontario is one the smallest of the great lakes but at the same time part of the largest lakes in the world...ironic
Your poem describe it very well for the lakes are one of Canada's many wonders.
Thanks LOA

LOA;

Yes Erie is the smallest followed by Ontario even so it is 311 km long and 85 km. wide. That's a lot of open water. The main thing that gets people into trouble on the lake is overconfidence. Even though it is called a lake it is in reality an fresh water sea. It might not have tides but when the storms get to howling out of the East it is time to set thing aright with the Creator and head for shore. The deep water mariners use the lines "Red sky at night. Sailors take delight. Red sky at mornng sailors take warning". This also pertains to the Lake.

I think Erie is the shallowest also. We have covered a lot of the American water looking for Walleye and it is mostly 25 to 35 feet with underwater sand bars. We certainly didn't come close to covering it all.

Yeah Eries is the shallowest. When the Walleye came back it was a sure sign the Lake was getting cleaner. Good fishing, Walleye.

We fish for Brown's occasionally on the west shore of Lake Michigan. I am leary re: eating anything out of any of the Great Lakes though. We do catch/release with the exception of Trophy sized fish or the occasional freak. I have a friend who caught a double tailed walleye. I have seen double dorsal finns too. To me that speaks of contamination yet.
