Voice Of The River
“O voluptuous maiden
why do you bring your tears
to the side of my flowing waters?
I have enough water to fill the valley.”
“O river,” replied the Maiden,
“I have been duped by a masquerading heart of Love,
even as we lay on your grassy banks
my pure heart was taken without warning.
My heart soared as the birds,
while words he whispered from tender lips
were of promises and dreams.”
“So why do you cry my maiden?”
“Why are the tears so full of sorrow?”
"I gave my love freely with no wants for myself,
now love is gone,
and I want to silently flow in your waters.”
But the river was wiser
and knew that its waters flow was unending.,
though there were places it flowed shallow,
and schemes where it is deep.
“I say to you my Maiden,
I tell you from wisdom ,
my waters are like your love,
it flows both shallow and deep,
with twists and turns,
over rocks, along the banks,and over the falls.
I will flow continuously
not knowing from where I originate
very much like your Love; and without end.”
