Dedicated to All Canoe Instructors

By Michael Cline, May 1995


Is a canoe just another boat?

Doesn’t it do more than just float?

As a canoe glides across the lake

A path of growth left in its wake.

A soul is awakened to all that is true –

The trees, the animals, and the sky so blue.

Much can be gained on canoe trips.

As your canoe glides and your paddle dips.

A teacher of this has a great task:

Many answers to ponder and questions to ask.
