Erie’s impulsive persona is sure
To quicken the pulse, to tempt and to lure.
Don’t let her shallowness put you at ease;
She has a deep yearning to taunt and to tease.
Waving invitingly -- warmly, it seems,
Changing at once to tempestuous screams.
Eerily haunting, she’s hard to resist.
She rules the Great Lakes with a placid clenched fist.
