Rolling River - Poem by PAUL COLVIN

By day, by night, you wander, singing your same song
Searching for your answer; where do you belong?
Where have you come from, where do you go?
I seek the answer you already know.
You run past fallen bridges, through fields of lushest greens
Where people sit and stare at you, they find you so serene
They close their eyes and dream a dream and wish they were as free
Whilst passers by look on in awe at the majesty they see.
Your routine never changes, the same path every day
You move with grace yet wild and free, in a very calming way.
I walk with you and hear your call as you move from town to town
Turning every corner and daily turn around
You're the lifeblood of all cities, hypnotising as you go
From a stream into a river, to the ocean you will flow.
