I CAME TO KNOW THE RIVERS DEPTH

I came to know the rivers depth, on a bright and sunny day, I came to
know the rivers depth, in the early days of May.
I sat upon it’s banks to ponder, the fulness of the flow, nothing else was
on my mind, but just to watch it go.
I came to know the rivers depth, and my eyes were not to see, as if from
my heart it poured, this fountain of dark mystery.
I was caught up in creation’s swirl, to see life in it’s true worth, the
taming of the white heat to mend, the stitch that binds death and birth.
The ghost of air that haunts my breath, and out beyond the very sky, the
dawn asked the sun to rise, the moon is the nights reply.
I came to know the rivers depth, I sank thru it’s realms like a stone, and a
flower grows in the meadow green, when the flesh does offer bone.
The music of the thunders voice, plays unto the lightnings dance, sweet
sleep descends to the wearies bed, to give the dreamers dreams a chance.
All is beauty in beauty’s eye, and all is pain to the wounded heart, and if
we could but know this end, we would know just where to start.
But temptation is an angry guide, and envy seems to mock your way, but
this spirit is stronger still, than all that man could do or say.
And now I know I can abide in peace, and harmony for evermore, because
I came to know the rivers depth, when I let go of the shore.
