For a Reid among reeds

Date January 29, 2009


The muddy shore is home to things

like turtles, frogs, and such.

But reeds that sway their cat-like tails

impress me twice as much.

They bow and dance as the wind goes by;

sometimes you can hear them purr.

The quiet hum of river kings

and raft-bound conquerors.

And in their songs I see the face

of my handsome newborn child.

As he sleeps and dreams of unknown lands

and taming the rivers wild.
