River Livin'


 


Down by the river on a warm summer night


I watched a white bird on his winged flight


to follow the river in its rippling flow


his destination I did not know.


 


A hoot owl called but a mystery was he


as he stayed hidden in his own big tree.


The fish were jumping


or maybe a frog?


A splash in the water as he hopped from his log.


 


The air is sultry, a storm's on the way


as I sit by the river at the end of the day.


A soft breeze is stirring as it plays through my hair,


Cooling my skin and my feet that are bare.


 


A new adventure...I feel so blessed!


My new home on the river...a fine place to rest.


Summer is waning but night critters abound


Filling the air with a wilderness sound.


 


Lightning is flashing, thunder grumbling low,


Reluctantly rising, it's time to go.


But I'll keep coming back don't ya know


Unfolding my chair where I sat


And you can just call me the


River Rat.
