The River Sped On

By William Snead, Army

Writing Type: Poem

By William L. Snead
VA Medical Center--Iron Mountain, MI

Tons of water, ice and snow
slammed down from the ice-capped mountain
and plummeted a THOUSAND FEET
to the bottom of the melee. 
Gushing water spurted upward to form
a dazzling blue, red, green rainbow.
And here the river was born;
from here the river sped on.
It saw villages and towns at peace with themselves.
And the river sped on.
It saw a speckled fawn grazing
near the end of a lush green cornfield.
And the river sped on.
It flowed through the bustle of business of a large city, 
its dark buildings looming as grotesque phantoms
during a soft summer night.
And the river sped on. 
Then a wayward hand touched the wrong button,
and the world stood still.
But the river asked no questions;
it gave no answers. And it told no lies.
It just sped on.
