River Flow

O river waters, where are you going?
Rushing to the vast ocean again 
To be dissolved in the blue depths?
This humdrum floating you do -
Don’t you think it's futile?
Never can you fill
The deep oceans
and the seas
With your
Flow.
Man, 
O Man!
Flow with me
And you will see
This living gifts me.
To sleepy woods I sing;
The dry grounds I fecundate
With mirth, earth's produce leap and bounce
To my body and reaches the land 
As my lithe shape edges valleys secure.

I love the way you have described a river's life- first the simple almost "humdrum" questioning view: "Don't you think it's futile?" And then to follow on with a sensual, lifegiving answer as an almost retort..."And you will see this living gifts me..." How wonderful to see the passionate energy in nature's consistent ebb and flow...
