I love watching swallows Gyrating and playfully swirls; Mingle above over the river Forming in a malee a ball. Swiftly riding the thermals Scooping the swelling water. They shriek wheeling freely Like boisterous little girls.
I came to see the lively acrobatics In graceful motion of symmetry. See enormous body of water flow Pour itself into it's wide open mouth. Slowly eroding shaping contours And lives living along it's banks. Constantly foreboding danger And yet beauty and the mighty Together in harmonious chemistry.
There I was many hours In thought. What do I ever get? At the jetty by the imperious River where until dark I will be. Time spent the opportunities Passing by I have no regrets. I'm like a ship from harbour To harbour of a predestined life With cargoes of worthless experience Till I rot at the bottom of the sea.
Laboriously river meander and flow Agile wings twist and turn in the air With invisible brush of arcs and lines With a vast sky as an open canvas. The two characters, elements Of nature, demonstrate their part; In the theater of strength and grace. While I am but a nameless intruder Grateful of the kindness forever last.
This is an old poem written a long time ago when I was a young lad. Rewritten certain parts as I had grown older better as a writer.
