You’ve been here for ages,
Your rages and seduction recorded in pages of time.
Rains falling with vengeance,
Increasing the strains on your banks
Along with the pains of change.
Your dark churning water races,
Removing traces of life, love, joy,
Leaving spaces disgracing your allure.
Our brains can’t fathom your destruction –
Hope tied to your rejuvenation,
Searching for safety, sanity and
Seized by force or filled with delight – the Jekyll and Hyde of our beloved Current River.
