Get Rid Of The Advertisements

A Riverwind Girl

I am a riverwind girl...

The river defines my boundaries
and echoes my history.
It draws me to boat races,
ballgames and bluegrass festivals.

When it floods it separates me
from everything I love.

The river continually inspires me.
It gathers the January snow
and the spring rain that rolls to the sea
and finds a voice in my poetry.

I am a riverwind girl...

and I'm a Catholic cat lover,
a Teutonic tree hugger,
a nervous grandmother,
a waltzer in winter,
ever true to my Capricorn soul.
