Lake Kalamalka: A Poem by Sara Newton 1951

Lake Kalamalka

A Poem by Sara Newton 1951

Deep! Deep shadows in the Lake,

Mirrored dwellings there I see—

And lovely gardens duplicate,

And snow-capped hills new colours take,

And grey blue clouds in the waters below,

Drifting along,—as the warm winds blow,

Wonderful depths and clearness blue,

Do they bring a message to you?

Of when we shall see through 

A gladsome tear:—

When our souls are clear

Like the mirrored Lake,

And shadows pass when in Heaven we wake.

Sara Newton

Okanagan Historical Society Report 15:143 1951

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.
Revelation 21:4-5
