There is a certain magic in the air when traveling by boat through the Thousand Islands just after sunset on a calm summer night. The shimmer of lights on water have a mesmerizing effect that transcends time. It is a banquet of wonders whose centerpiece is the majestic Boldt Castle.
I share some lines from “Summer Magic” by Leslie Pinckley Hill written around 1922.
Then summer came, announced by June,
With Beauty, miracle and mirth.
She hung aloft the rounding moon,
She poured her sunshine on the earth,
Her nights were dreams of jeweled skies,
Her days were bowers rife with song,
And many a scheme did she devise
To heal the hurt and soothe the wrong.
Before my cottage door she spread
The softest carpet nature weaves,
And deftly arched above my head
A canopy of shady leaves.
