River's Longing

The house exists near a river that rolls The river moves quickly under the knolls Around the bend that seems to flood often The house has life that seems to happen Working within the sections of delight Fishing comes often and seems to be right Having the roughness of life come to play Opens the heart, masterful sight to lay Catching the river as the bad approach Time enlists a harness of this world’s coach The house has to harden its boundaries During times of painfully, wobbly knees The house suffers with the river’s longing To be one with the land and belonging
