Watch The River

Watch the river currents flow
to and fro, to and fro
see the bubbles rise and grow
vanishing to depths below

Watch the waves' white crested show
shudder as the North winds blow
while the hardy boatsmen row
skirting gaping undertow

See the wlllow gently throw
silken strands to plant and sow
watch the fisher mend and sew
salty nets in measured rows

May my days on earth below
move as gently and as slow
as a stream when morning glow
touches it and then lets go

May my nights be free of woe
and my spirit fear forgo
may I be with love bestowed
shared with friend as well as foe

Watch the river currents flow
to and fro, to and fro
see the bubbles rise and grow
vanishing to depths below.
