The River

The River Where are you heading, rolling river, as you move along? Where did you start your winding journey centuries ago? What daring tales lay hidden in your soothing, rippling song? What deep, dark secrets do you hold in mysteries below as you now drift entrapped in nature's never-ending flow? Sandra M. Haight ~9th Place~ Contest: Form-River Line Sponsor: Rick Parise Judged: 11/27/2016 Iambic Heptameter: 14 Syllables, 7 Feet Per Line
