Of Her, River

At first my feet would not allow
Myself to feel her dashing charm
But once inside of her somehow
I came to joy with no alarm

She always let's me take a swim
And sail upon her salted streams
At night when light is dark and grim
Her beauty blossoms mid-night dreams

She's clear and cute and calm and cool
I'll love her to the very end
My Pa wants me to buy a pool
Maybe I'm just a rivers friend

    EXCELLENT metaphor for a "her" I love the twist! GREAT writing, Johnny. (and I adore water, but of the ocean variety!)
