Lost Lake by Katherine White
(Inspired by Dulux Paint Card - idea copyright of Calum Kerr)
Lost lake. To find it you have to dig for it. Clear the creepers, clear the jagged brambles, find the slope dipping away- excitement! Look at the size of it! Imagine it with water, ducks, dancing grebes and wistful cries of coots. Imagine boats, young laughter, picnics on the island. Imagine the water rushing in, a hidden grotto, dark with lichen.
Imagine the man hours to dig it out, the back-breaking toil it will take to restore it to its former glory. Best left.
