Northern Bard: Collyn Lovelace “Eine glückliche Verbindung”

Eine glückliche Verbindung

Ein shared curiosity

exists between the land of the midnight sun

and the place we call Germany,

and they Deutschland.

The people of midnight sun take the Condor to Deutschland

for the architecture, the beer, the pretzels, the Alps.

The Deuschlanders take the Condor to Yukon

for the untouched land,

the wildlife, the peace

the quiet.

An international flight out of a small northern airport

connects the two continents, the two peoples,

 the two distinct cultures.

Enabling those with the bug to go…

Both born to fly.

A fortunate connection.

Poem Identity: Narrative poem with integration of the German language.
