song 21

a.
A good year, a good year for us

River’s a hyphen, source to source
Cause and course
The active pause

We are that which binds us
Spirit at the crux
Named for our links
How a river thinks

Hand, ring
I give you almost everything
Except an ending

Reap in joy who sow in sorrow
Rain: timbal today, river tomorrow
Symbol in motion; faith not what we know
But how we go
Río Bairoa
Río Bayamón
Río Saltillo
Río Inabón

Río de la Mina
Río Limaní
Río de Caguanita
Río Grande de Manatí

Blackstone

b.
System of systems –
Water episteme;
Shared course
Me-hyphen-you, matched; spouse
Source
Joy in going
Come so far to find it snowing
He who goes out weeping,
Carrying seed to sow
Will return with songs of joy, bringing sheaves,
Hydro-hyphen
Binding what stays, leaves
Happiness, at its strangest
Does not happen, it waits; helps us wait
When
I recover you in dreams
Then
I am filled with waiting, with happiness
Yours and mine, rivers twine
An ending is the only unreal idea

Río Sapo, Coamo, Barbas
Río Nuevo, Seco, Zamas
Blackstone, Chickahominy
River river river river river

c.
The going is the place we’re going
Strongest with a spouse
I hold back only an ending
River is a house

Río Anon, Toro Negro
Cameron Run, and Yeocomico

River river river river river

d.
Stillness is a cold way of knowing
Sow in tears, reap with songs of joy
Water: envoy
May we be changed

Timbal. Traveling together, my sign, my match
I give you everything but an ending

Ángeles, Yauco, Lachi y Frío
Ararat, Hyco, Otter and Po
The river is Easter

River river river river river

e.
A pairing, a responsibility;
Travel is the force of family,
A way steps are paired,
Spondees, will and wish compared.

When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion,
We were like men who dreamed.
Restore our fortunes, O Lord, like streams in the Negev.

Turabo, Viejo, Viví, Yagüez,
Shoemaker, Dan, Ta and Rose;
River river river river river

That last year was a good year,
A good year for us.

f.
Nemo, the dream, the portage
River’s a hyphen, source for source
Río Anon, Toro Negro
River is a house

Cause and course
The active pause
We are that which binds us
Spirit at the crux

Named for our links
How a river thinks
Hand, ring
I give you almost everything
Except an ending

Poni, Catoctin, Clinch
Río Cubuy, Guayabo, Marín

The river
Is Easter
River River River River River

g.
Tallaboa, Guayo, Lapa y Corcho
Ararat, Hyco, Otter and Po

Reap in joy who sow in sorrow
Rain: timbal
Symbol in motion; faith is not what we know
But how we go
System inside system –
Water episteme;
Shared course
Me-hyphen-you, matched; spouse
Source

River river river river river

h.
Joy in going
Come so far to find it snowing
He who goes out weeping
Will return with songs of joy, bringing sheaves
Hydro-hyphen
Binding what stays, leaves
When
I recover you in dreams
Then
I am filled with waiting, with happiness

Creek, Rockfish, Severn
Sinking and Mosquito
Bauta, Guilarte, Sonador

prime
River’s a hyphen, source to source
Cause and course
The active pause
We are that which binds us
Spirit at crux
Named for our links
How a river thinks
Hand, ring
I give you almost everything
Except an ending

Joy in going
Come so far to find it snowing
Reap in joy who sow in sorrow
Rain now, river tomorrow
Tymbal action, symbolic motion
Hydro-hyphen
Binding what stays, leaves
Bringing in the sheaves
Happiness, at its strangest
Does not happen, it waits
When
I recover you in dreams
Then
I am filled with waiting, with happiness

Reap in joy
Water: envoy
May we be changed
