Been reflective


On a hill o’re looking the river below

The waters reflect the life

Along its borders

It ripples under the movement

Of fish, fowl and man

Colors of the seasons are mirrored

Orange, green, yellow and blue

Workers on the sternwheelers keep tabs of the depths

Mark Twain! They yell out

Who knew the stories that would touch the centuries

Would have been born

Of a man so enamored by the river

He would change his name

To reflect the depths of the waters

On which he rode

I loved reading this poem. A very thoughtful and enjoyable tribute to both the river and the man inspired by its associated activities.
I am especially fond of rivers because I grew up on the Racquette river, so this one is especially delightful to me.
Wonderful poem!

A tranquil and thoughtful poem reflective of the River and its seasons...I found it very calming...
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 5/15/2012
Shall we meet his Twain again? I think not. But I am encouraged by his writing to continue so that I might write my Huckleberry Finn in my waning years.

A beautifully conveyed point of view.
