The Mississippi

As a young man, I lived on the Missouri River up in the Dakotas.  That must be why I have such an affinity for rivers and especially the Mighty Mo’ and the beautiful, Mississippi River.  It still captivates me.

The Mississippi

The Mississippi flows
and stirs imagination.
Through heat of summer and winter snows
the Mississippi flows.
When one first sees her, one then knows,
as she swells in sweet flirtation
The Mississippi flows
and stirs imagination.
