River Basin - Poem by mike ruthenbeck

Rapid river boil's blossum brilliant
Liquid petals turning, and reforming;
Glist'ning sun diamonds burning resilient,
Bald eagle, overhead, simply soaring...

Sprawled in the grass to smoke by the water;
And filthy, I soil the cleanest sheets.
Mud clings my legs like a loving daughter-
The river bank is where my soul retreats
This bend here, hollow overhang on shore,
With Oaken giant fell'd for me to rest;
Carp splash round, in pursuit of nightly chore,
A little dragon lands upon my breast.

Good God Girty- I must have lost my mind
Always scramb'ling around and searching for time
This tweety bird here is more of my kind
I enjoy myself (While I'm at my prime) .

For this splendid river on forest banks,
I give sincere thanks, as I smoke my danks.
