Moon River.

The waters flowed so gently
From their source up in the hills
Flowing smoothly through the night
The peace and tranquillity it instils
Passing the trees and shrubs and grass
Sleeping on either side
Onward ever onward to the Estuary
Eventually deep and wide
But there beneath the Full Moon
Shining from up above
Shimmering on the water
Creating an aura of love
Over the weir the water rushes
In a hurry it would seem
Then slows again to a gentle current
As it carries on downstream
Regardless of the Damsel standing there
In a white and flowing gown
Looking into the distance
Her long tresses hanging down
I wonder if she’s waiting for Prince Charming
To gallop up through the spray
Whisk her up on the saddle behind him
And carry her away

Dennis Shrubshall 18th June 2018
