LYNN LAKE LODGE
"Lynn Lake Lodge"
I've discovered a treasure I've shared with a few,
It's nothing shiny, fancy or sparkling new.
This isn't an object to have or to hold.
It's an outdoor escape that never grows old.
Leave your problems, politics and the daily grind,
I found a spot in the country, a great place to unwind.
So slip away with me, and you will see
I have found a retreat near Webster, South Dakota,
I'm sure you'll agree.
Picture a place where hundreds of ducks and geese fly,
Clouds of all shapes float against a crystal blue sky.
Years of much rain and snow have overtaken the land,
Islands replaced where many vacant farmsteads now stand.
Great schools of fish swim, where farm crops once grew.
The valleys are filled with multiple lakes and large sloughs.
Fishermen and hunters travel from far and near,
For the area abounds in pheasants, waterfowl, and deer.
Herons and Pelicans fish, with their specialized bills.
You'll see an old country church humbly perched on a distant hill.
Crowing pheasants announce each morning of new.
Neither trees nor buildings will obstruct your eyes' view.
Practically all the days in Webster are warmed by the sun.
Most end with beautiful "Sky Paintings", when the day is done.
If you're an Outdoorsmen, need a little solitude,
Or just need to "Get out of Dodge",
Take a trip to see Paul and Karen Johnson,
You'll be glad you had a stay at Lynn Lake Lodge.
