Love is a River
by miss abagail mannering

Love is a river
ever changing as it flows..
and occasionally disembarks
from the path it once chose.

It bubbles and churns,
runs shallow and deep...
and some dry up
in the raging stillness of heat.

The currents move differently
through channels and pools...
and in the right dosage
refreshes and cools.

Love, unlike water,
can't be bottled or sold.
It comes from the heart,
and is NEVER cold.

***This was written 2/9/2000 during my abnormal psych class.. co-inkydink? I wrote it for Rick for V-day...(a was also REALLY thirsty when I wrote it)
(I can't remember if i posted this one or not, sorry if it's a re-peat)

This first stanza was amazing, as was the rest of the poem...however that first stanza...awesome! great job.

I agree with Aimster

the first stanza has such power.

Great Poem!

 The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship."

--Ralph Waldo Emerson
