River Poetry     Nanook's River Poetry
Boulder's Riff

I touched a rock for you last fall
down Bartibogue’s green alder hall.
I ambled with my trusty blade
along the edges of the glade.

I timed my green boat’s gentle glide
to skirt the stone on the inward side,
slipping sweetly by boulder’s riff
and grazing it for my ole buddy Biff.

Yet at once I am alert,
mind and body to reality revert.
I steer my boat in current’s surge
as rock and ledge swiftly emerge.

The fleeting dream I had that day
will never die nor fade away.
A moment in time, on river past,
A dream that will forever last.
