THE NORTH POND HERMIT by Troy R. Bennett

Nobody’d seen his face, in twenty-seven years

Since that day in ’86 when he up and disappeared

He walked away into the pines, to live among the wood

He turned his back on everything and he was gone for good

The North Pond Hermit, living in the woods

The North Pond Hermit, they’d catch him if they could

Some said he was a ghost, some said he wasn’t real

And all he ever had to eat was all that he could steal

In and out of every camp, all around the pond

Stealing food in the dark, by morning he was gone

They say he’d sit for days watching things that grow

Or counting eagles over head and everything below

Sometimes he’d listen to the wind filling up his mind

Counting raindrops one by one to pass away the time

Summer, winter, spring and fall, seasons came and went

Still he lived there all alone in a solitary tent

No leaving camp in wintertime, no footprints in the snow

No fire for fear that he’d be seen sending up the smoke

The cops they caught him in the spring, robbing one more time

They took him to the jailhouse to answer for his crimes

They said we have one question, to ask before you go

What would make you do it, he said he did not know
