Teen Ambassador inspired by Voyageurs National Park, pens poem


Bright blue is the sky Soft white are the clouds Red intense, is the sunset Passions sleep in Kabetogama’s heart

Water, Air, Fire, and Land I come back to life In the majesty of Kabetogama’s paradise That makes me feel close to the sky

The green trees The senses of life Spontaneous feelings Flying over the sky

Fresh breeze Quiet and alone Sitting over the rock Softly the waters float

Red sunset Vivid color In the sky Peaceful moments in my eyes

The sound of the lake Swinging at night Makes me sigh And feel alive

Fresh morning Hot afternoon Cold night And the constellations in the sky

The moon, the lake and the stars How wonderful is life! Free as the eagle I hope one day to fly

Hiking through the path Serenity and peace surround I found faith and light To my spirit lost in the dark

Silent green forest In persistent calm, the lake sings Picturesque moment That Kabetogama land created in my heart
