River Trip

Huge

 

 

We float by the reeds;

buoyed on Styrofoam boards

that are faded, and gouged

by the river stones below.

 

Sheep in the paddocks make

soft plaintive bleats, envious,

over the flushed hush of the water.

 

If we drift long enough

under the stretch of lapis azure,

beneath willow tendrils and past

incumbent mounds of gravel,

we will reach a pool

(where eels hide from daylight

in the mangrove roots):

there the sun ripples, warm and vivid

on the soft silt beneath us.
