Walking by the river

Walking by the river.

It was that kind of day
With the Spring Sun soft and warm
There was a kind of energy
That moved within my form
I could have walked the whole day long
As I felt me, natures pull
Oh Lord those river trails are beautiful.

I passed a group of roos
Who were grazing by the river
Some Parrots screeched above my head
And set my heart a quiver
And as those creatures gave their calls
A Kookaburra laughed
Oh how I love to walk that river path.

It was that kind of day
That you’d like to last for years
With the country air rich in my lungs
And my mind all calm and clear
I could have walked until I dropped
Along that river trail
Feeling good and living in the now.

    This write glows ever so brightly my friend. Great from beginning to end. I too love to walk by the river or just sit on a bridge over a river at midnight and listed to the world SING! Especially in late summer. Even strip down to my underwear and take a swim. lol Days of youth and how I so miss them! A fantastic write. BBBravooooo!!!!!!!

    Your ballade helps convince me that Men and God and rivers are meant to commune in special places at special times..... Great writing, Peter...... Regards... Jake

    Thank you Jake for your comments. I have always felt an affinity with the power of life when near rivers or lakes. they always inspire me to write, especially in the early mornings. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my songs...peter
