A Terza Rima Contest Entry

Oh, The Joys of River Life!

by Y. M. Roger

A river it ripples and frolics along,
Happily with no destination in mind -
It smiles around rocks as it burbles its song…

For exercise workouts it will twist and wind,
Lifting leaves, branches, and all sorts of debris -
It murmurs its secrets as braille to the blind…

It relaxes in pools, resting and carefree,
Taking time to reflect and catch some sun’s rays -
It laps at its banks to make stunning marquees…

Though seeming to roam, it’s quite set in its ways -
The life of a river can’t help but amaze!
