“Epilogue” to the "Tragedy" of Crystal Lake

The sun has set, and o'er the quiet lake
  His light still lingers, reluctant to depart.
    The darkening hills draw close, and over all
      Peace reigns, but discontent still fills my heart.

But as I stand alone upon the shore
  Peace also comes to me - I seem to hear
    A voice amongst the murmur of the waves
      Saying. "Be still and know that God is near."

And so, O lovely lake, you gave to me
  A message straight from God. And I still take
    That message with me as I wander far.
      And hope once more to see you, Crystal Lake.

-- Walter F. Case, February 4, 1895 - March 6, 1923

About Walter F. Case — He was the son of William L. Case, his son, Leonard L. Case, was a lumberman (Timber Products Manufacturing Co. in Beulah) and a stringer correspondent for the Benzie Co. Advisor (“The Crystal Gazer’). W. L. Case was the man who so masterfully told the authentic story of the lowering of Crystal Lake.
