River Lilies

Saw a boy three lilies white,
Lilies in the river,
Half heart-open to the light,
Full of golden arrows bright,
Each a silver quiver.
Lilies, lilies, lilies white,
Lilies in the river.

Said the boy, “I’ll pluck you there,
Lilies in the river!”
Said the lilies, “If you dare
You shall drown, or homeward fare
Dripping and a-shiver!”
Lilies, lilies, lilies white,
Lilies in the river.

Wilful still the boy would clasp
Lilies in the river;
Tumbled in ere he could grasp,
Scrambled out with puff and gasp,
Plucked no lilies ever.
Lilies, lilies, lilies white,
Lilies in the river.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Flowing Red River

I dive head first into the flowing red river.
It's acrid taste fills my mouth.
I drown in it's putrid depths.
My heart pounds and excitement grips.

As the flowing red river drips.
I cannot contain my growing glee.
I cannot wait to feed on it's bounty.
From down below I stand up straight at attention,
rigid stiff I rise to greet this wonderful fate.

I feel it right now it's raging in pure excitement.
The pinnacle of joy hits like a bomb.
The flowing red river fills me up.
I bend right down from it to suck.
In and out I feel such love.
It cleans my soul flowing red river runs.

Yet I'm sad when the flowing red rivers gone.
Sadness for it's run is done.
Fear not though we'll always meet.
When the flowing red river comes to greet.
For seasonally it always returns for my enjoyment,
a fresh flow forms soaking all before me,
I'll take advantage with pure greed.
Michael P. McParland

Star Light River

Star Light river how beautiful you are
With your unforgettable sunset on the river's edge
The colors of orange, gold, pink and red
Tiny little violets growing here and there
Then the stars come out lighting up the waterfront
Looking like tiny diamonds moving in their very own private dance
The lights of the city add to the glow
There is nothing more beautiful than the river's flow
The river that I have always called Star Light river
If only it could talk I'll bet it could tell us so many secrets
About love and life; I know that I love to sit and take in its beauty
It has such a peace that I enjoy
When I am feeling sad
I feel that it really understands
My very inner thoughts and I am not really alone
What a beautiful friend to have
It never deserts me
It is always there. I love you Star Light river
I promise I will be back to watch your very own private dance
Remembering my stories of love and romance
Alma Jean Epps

Life Is Like A River

we give away like the way a river flows
day to day

we may start with the petals of the flowers
we let them fall one by one

to the flow of the river
then we begin again with the leaves and then

the twigs and the branches and then if we have
nothing more to give we give away the tree itself

to the flow of the river
we look at ourselves we give every part of us

piece by piece to the flow of the great river
our properties our honor our clothes and when all these

are given away we start to give back our hands, our feet
we look at every pocket of our senses and when everything

is given away we shall now give the last that we have to the flow
of this great river of life

we let flow our soul. we have given everything
sometimes we ask that we stay for a while, but this cannot be

the law of the great river of life is clear, we give everything away
slowly, willingly, until all the pain of giving is gone away
