Coast, Boat, Float! - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Coast, boat, float!
To change everything;

Weal and woe! !
Finding your limits in life.

Surge, urge!

Made of glass,
With a class;

Made of brass,
With the muse of the grass around.

Rivers and trees!
Sweet and salty together;

Green river,
Brown river;

With the muse of the boat on the blue river,
To change everything.

    An interesting analogy that our moods and behaviors are so swiftly like a boat, every second life is changing and rearranging in different waves, Beautiful rhythm in the words descried, its hypnotic and serene. A great addition to your catalog. (Report) Reply
