River [a poem]

By Melody Finch | Featured Contributor


All I see is River
Crashing on its crazy course
Ever onwards, on forever
With such fervour, with such force

But there is sun…there is moon
Verdant meadow, windswept dune
Shimmering dusk, starlit sky
Scented forests, mountain high

Ravaged hilltops, rugged moor
Rain-bowed flowers, trees galore
Dazzling deserts, sweetest breeze
Frosted lakes, majestic screes

Hear the music, nature sings
Sunsets tremble, daybreak rings
Hum of life, whisper of shore
Lullaby ocean, mighty roar

But all I hear…is River
Crashing on its crazy course
Ever onwards, on forever
With such fury, with such force

So, to God I raise my prayer
Help me notice they are there
Before my spirit starts to wither
Slow down the course of this crazed River
