The River Knows - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Englyn unodle crwca

Quietly the river flows
never telling all it knows.
Has no reason I suppose and no voice.
We rejoice it does.

Whilst the river holds its peace.
We need not fear it might release,
From its store of memories: Dark secrets.
It forgets and heeds our pleas.

Secrets which we wish to hide.
We can cast our cares aside.
The wise river will decide, not to tell.
suits us well, all denied

Sins we now view with regret
.Sins we would we could forget
The river will keep secret for ever
and never cause upset.
