The Chattahoochee River - Poem by Willie Walker

The Chattahoochee River is muddy and deep,
Rolls restless in her bed, and never sleeps.

She churns, whirls, and sometimes creeps,
But the Chattahoochee River never sleeps.

She cascades, crashes, her falls are steep,
So the Chattahoochee River never sleeps.

A child, in innocence, in her water leaps,
Unaware, the Chattahoochee never sleeps.

She snatches him down, his little body to keep,
Cause the Chattahoochee River never sleeps.

He struggles for his life, so tender and meek.
Oh! the Chattahoochee River never sleeps.

She steals his breath, while caressing his cheeks.
Careless Chattahoochee River just never sleeps.
