The River

By 8th July 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

You lazily wander, through pastures Green,
Curling your way as you flow to the sea.

Sand Martins, Kingfishers, live in your banks.
Tail swishing cattle, stand cooling their flanks.

The sunshine reflecting the Golden Gorse,
In shallows you gurgle your baby talk.

Why do you rush to be lost in the sea?
Linger a little the sights to enjoy.

Feel the beauty your presence inspires.
Talk to the Rainbow Trout, his beauty admire.

As he grows fatter on the food you provide.
Why do you rush to meet up with the tide?

In your deep pools, the predatory Pike prowls,
Greedily snapping up any smaller souls.

He does’nt rush off to be part of the sea.
