Canoe Trip Down the White River

The White River writhes
past islands thick with green ferns 
and wild birds sing

A green shypoke flies--
The serpentine river flows
curls and swirls below. 

The river burbles
over bright sandy shallows
murmurs over snags.

Red paddles steer past
fallen trees that could tip them--
the White River sings.
