Rivers rushing,

Spilling with summer rain

And winter thaw.

Winding,

Twisting,

Turning,

Ever changing,

Never still.

Splashing,

Bubbling,

Trickling,

Creating happy sounds

Sounds of life.

Cool water,

Scooped up by pale hands,

Sipped by youths lips.

Rivers flowing,

Leaving life

In their paths.
