A River View

Churning with brown mud, Carp and catfish splash and jump, Lily pads float with white blooms adding more beauty. Tall Elms guard the water’s edge. Wildlife seen daily, Blue Heron fish for supper, Cows drink the water, A raccoon sleeps in the tree, An owl perches on a branch. A river for sport, Canoes float by surveying, Anglers motor by, As the river freezes blue, Snowmobiles skate on the ice. Written by Lee Ramage September 7, 2011 Contest by Francine Roberts “The View” (a Tanka)

    I am definitely envious of your view, especially as the river freezes and the skaters have the floating time.

    Hi Andrea, nice to hear from you. Yes, we have a beautiful lazy river out back, we are up on a hill so it is pretty private, but everyone loves to sit on our back deck and watch the scene, its better than TV in the summer. Take care Lee
