Chris was chosen Poet Laureate of the oslist in 2000. His poetry is so
personal and profound. The poem he shared with us:


You have arrived here
before, burning for air,
surfacing in a circle
of early spring lakewater

with loons around you.
Did even the ones
who love you understand
why you stepped off

the dock into black
water?  The beckoning voice
was so soft: consider
the lilies.  We carve

that first time into
a monument of birdsong
and hand each other deeper
trust, easily, like sandwiches.
