honor the passing river as the dandelions sway

    This is the poetry which is rich with esoteric allusions, a standard and well-composed piece with a special lexical choice quite sumptuous according to the classical place of the river Rhine, who can forget Faustus' pride:

    whose banks are set with groves of fruitful vines.) A great homage offered! ! ! (Report) Reply
