River Poem by Francis Julian Zewu


There is a river that is as long as the Nile
But is not the Nile,
As deep as the mighty Mississippi but is not the Missy,
The waters cascade like the great waterfall in Africa,
Yet is not limited to one place,
This river is fine as wine,
Sweet as a peach cobbler,
Swift as a cold breeze on a winter's morning,

This river is meant to be explored,
Every bend, crevice, ford, and turn bring something new and exciting,
I want to explore this river, dwell in it,
Swim its currents,
Taste the sweet waters that never cease to flow
This river is your love,
This river is my love,
This river is meant for me,
This river is meant for you,
Let's sail this river of everlasting love.
