Water Voices

The voices of the youngsters
in the three church camp canoes
radiate like gathering waves
across the water, as if they
were speaking into live mikes.
They believe themselves
safe from camp strictures
to say what they’d never dare
on shore. Water may be
a cleanser, but it’s also
a great conductor.
