that ferocious river

That ferocious river scavenging this earth
Brutal and merciless, her hunger obnoxious
Turning muds incessant,
fierce flowing waters;
Blistering blows unforgiven from her birth
That ferocious river scavenging this earth

That anger violent in the sound of fountain,
precipitous from a violent height, grey and abandoned,
in the mist of a cloud's hey,
amidst phosphorous drops of ray,
reverberates in angst gay,
bursts now in thousands foams,
like a cracker's joys in bludgeons
That ferocious river scavenging this earth

    I enjoyed reading this poem! It tingled old memories! In my school days in Cal.
    I had seen a movie at The Ligthouse called -'The River Of No Return'! While reading your poem - a few flash backs did occur! Thanks!
