The Range

The rivers rise, released, unrestrained
Reborn of unrepentant rain
Recalling remnants of rimrock gained
Wrecked residences, drifting rafts, remain

Though dawn's rays reveal ruin and regret
Resolve ran through the returning vets
Of robust wars, whose rigors met
The rate the sliding roadblocks set

The ramparts raised, unrestricted
Remorse, redirected and evicted
Replacing rusty banks, constricted
Rebuilt runs regulated, predicted

They'll ride the restored, irrigated plains
Until the red ridges reclaim the range.

Michelle, your command over these words makes you a relatively reasonably ridiculously resounding respectable R-master! And I have no idea how difficult this must have been to write, but it's a winner!
