4.3.11 River Daughter

Saw you in the water today
fingers touch the ground
grains of sand swirling out of your hair
no thoughts from our troubled land.

I went to reach in
to your wonderful water world
my hand came up empty
and the ripples
   the ripples

They say you are a fairy's tale
the whispers through the trees
but I know things different
now that I've seen you.

Don't try to hide from me
summer can't stand still
I'll catch your thread one day
and jump into that water too.
