The River

The River

landscapes

 

Flowing faster – ever faster
Current compelling, waves swelling.
Oh flimsy barque! I trust in thee
To carry me to eternity.
Rocks batter, sides shatter, yet no matter
The River pulls.
An eddy binds, swamp mires,
Yet still it flows, til it expires.
Oh winding River! Never straight,
Providence’s route determining fate.
Steering clear of shoots and snags
The great sea waits beyond
