My Favourite Song

A chocolate eddy
swallows my line
and my time
and life is good
 
A moist, warm
                             Southern breeze                               
greets those ancient
cottonwood trees
and they sing
their timeless symbiotic song
My favourite song
 
Sun nods his goodbye and fades
over the Western bluffs
Leaving this great river
dappled
in notes of crimson
and black
 
A chocolate eddy
swallows my line
River seems hungrier
than the fish
that reside in his waters
 
How many times
has this song been wasted
on those oblivious
to its grace?
 
A chocolate eddy
swallows my line
and my time
stops
 
My favourite song
