"Song To Sing While Hiking The River

Your body and soul should be the same after a thrashing summer rain as you go to the river to swim and then again for a second helpin’, how the mud roils and broils, tangles and flows you dip once, dip twice, no matter what’s in your mind the river goes bringing down current from village, farm and field anything that will tip over, budge and yield, while the fish will surprise you with a leap & a flap in their natural ruffle habitat."
