Peck's Pond by Judi Van Gorder Murky surface of Peck's Pond, the stocked rainbow trout swim stunned. The camp sick children attend and fish sitting on the sand. Sabino Canyon by Stephen Arndt Stopping by a spring-fed lake On our carefree canyon hike, Giving feet a grateful soak, I inspect a spiring peak. Former aeons formed these rocks With their crevices and cracks; Here are boulders stacked like bricks, There are carved-out caves and nooks. See the massive mountain ridge, Cacti clutching to a ledge, Wearing blossoms like a badge, You may gaze - they will not grudge. When I hear the canyon rills With the gurgling sound that lulls, Seeing slopes arise from dells, I wish my house had such walls.
