Gibbous moon at the Church O’ The Pines

SOMETIMES, here at the Church O’ The Pines, when a gibbous moon dangles among the limbs of the tall timber, I can almost imagine I am camped on some old, favorite campsite, deep in the North Country wilderness. Of course, this is a favorite campsite, too; and in the times of Zebulon Pike and Schoolcraft, this, too, was wilderness. And the geese winging their way down the river and the great horned owl hooting from the forest, say that a touch of the wild abides yet today.
