Swimming in the Nile

By Rediate

 

From the grass to the bank

Then the river flowed

Before me.

I saw the murky but clean

Water.  It was beckoning

Me in.  I couldn’t resist.

I jumped in.  The water was

So inviting.  It was warm and

Peaceful.  Gentle as a dove

But fierce as a lion.  That day

The Nile gave me joy.
