River

Jo Bloggs

The fluent river flows free
From the mountain to the sea.
Water issued from the springs—
That is what the river brings,
Stretching on across the land
Like a desert full of sand.
Flowing north, east, west, or south
From its source down to its mouth,
It erodes impediments
And deposits sediments.
Flowing free across a plain,
It is fed by falling rain.
It feeds animals and plants
From tall redwoods to small ants,
Grows with each tributary,
Ends in an estuary,
And is forever flowing,
Never stopping but going.
Water pulled by gravity
Forms a river flowing free.
