DARK RIVER


Swift 'n deep you run “Dark River”
Flowing relentless to a distant sea
You care not what gets in your way
Oh, impassive taker and faux-giver

How many canyons have you carved?
How many great trees carried away?
How many sins have washed clean?
Not even Mother Nature you obey

Dark River brought love to me
Then quickly washed it away
Deep ‘neath a million ripples
My fragile heart she did betray

Flow on Dark River, flow on
A Briny fate awaits, flow on

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
