Ode to a Tinkling Valley Stream


There is a place down in there
Where river waters run
And peace, like a companion sits
Alone waiting in the sun.

There is a place down in there
Where river waters rush
There is a place down in there
Where one can hear a hush

There is a place down in there
Where gentle glories lie
Where troubles drift and sorrows lift
With each cloud that passes by--

There is a place down in there
Where you can go to hear
Your thoughts that ripple one by one
And you can shed a tear

There is a place down in there
(Fond memory of the heart)
Of love found at the water's edge
From this (dear one) do not depart--

There is a place down in there
Where the river waters flow
Next to the giant oak tree
A thing that you should know

And if by chance, you set there
Stretched long, quiet, and still
You'll find yourself a resting place
That is, if you will.

  1. I would so rest in a place like that - I like that last line. I would.
