Then we sat by the ravishing river;
Beside us were flowers that seldom wither -
They had droplets on their bright petals which slowly slithered -
Then gust of wind wickedly washed away the droplets from a flower
As rain poured an unexpected shower.
With each droplet from the clouds
Bathing the river with royal ripples
As if it wore a crown,
The people rushed into their tents.
To them, a calamity they wished to prevent
But to us, a sweet pleasure -
So we sat by the ravishing river
With our legs bent and our hearts content.
As the birches swung along the whoosh of the river,
The cold wind gently whispered -
It was time for dinner.
We shunned the whisper
And did not go hither
Forever, we sat by waves of the ravishing river.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
This poem is about the significance of nature that we ignore everyday, as humans. We fail to appreciate nature for its magnificence.
