Once a proud river, now a trickling stream.
A victim of grand plans and visionary dreams.
A great force of nature or so it once seemed;
the rapids were tamed for a future redeemed.
Redeemed by the people that came from afar:
survivors of hardship, they still bore the scars.
From the ash of old Europe to a land that was new.
Joining the Hydro - the best they could do.
Roll! Roll! Roll on your way.
