POEM - Blue Eyed River

How you love to tease me
Oh Blue eyed river I see
Ribbon of god’s tears
Umbilical to earth
How your brackish water
Covers your marshy green lap
How you love to tease me
Dear Blue eyed River I see.

How you love to hide and make me seek
Oh Blue Eyed River I see
Great strength below
Denies your exquisite calm face
Flash me white capped teeth
How you love to duck down below
The low plunging tree line
Dear Blue Eyed River I see.

How you push the land wide for me
Oh Blue Eyed River I see
With sanguine grace
The wild ocean turns you loose
How you put things into their proper place
Grief and joy arranged just so, just so
How you push the land wide for me
Dear Blue Eyed River I see.

How you groan at my parting
Oh Blue eyed River I see
While I beg for azure eyes
Like yours that weep for me
How you cry to behold me
As I try to behold you.
How you groan at my parting
Dear Blue Eyed River I see.
