Brian EnoThe River

So deep in the water Sleep, dark as the night Somehow it seems it was all another dream Soon dissolved in the light. Oh, we were by the waterline. Vague, the song of the night. Innocent to all the peasant gods with you, So, we drink to be renewed. On the long, deep river Where the moorhens cry As the first sun quivers in the open sky... Oh, she came down the river. Soon, all the leaves were still. The current was strong and the river was so long. So, we drink to be renewed. In the long cool evening, Where the peacocks shiver And the boat starts down the silver river way... I remember you saying, As her deep eyes opened, In the first light seeing her, "here is someone new". © 2018
