The Delaware River needs a song

October 16, 2013

We are head over heels for your personality
Our relationship with you is life-long
Time spent together is unforgettable
Amazing river, you need a tribute song

Need an artist who resonates with your tempo
Appreciates when the rhythm is slow
Responds to the natural crescendo
Write a chorus that speaks to your flow

A mix of rock for your bottom,
Some blues for your mountain skies
Country for the scenery
Inspired by love, as is seen through your eyes

You mirror the goodness in each of us
And mirror the goodness in the world
An unlimited source of intelligence
An abundance of nurturing unfurled

Earth breathes in the love that is needed
We breathe in and feel reassured
Create expressions of our feelings about you
We share, and others feel drawn toward

I’d add some words to the tribute
I hope someone starts to compose
It’s a simple wish, as it were
Not till you show up, will we see how it goes
