The Song of the River

© Janet Kvammen

 

Through the great land which we call home,

Flows pristine river of silver current and foam,

Emerald rainforest, Loden-jade,

Under majestic mountains of multiple shade.

A glistening carpet of mica shimmers in the brilliant light

Glacial pure, cold as ice, a sensory delight.

 

The rush of the hypnotic water lull’s me into a dream

Where the dark river welcomes stream.

Water cascades ever-flowing,

Time passes by all knowing.

 

Hope floats on borrowed dreams,

Muddy river bellows whispered screams.

Mother Earth’s heart wrenching sigh,

The Song of the River is her cry.

 

Gushing from the womb of Gaia, torn

With a rush and a roar, the mighty Fraser was born.
