A Night by the River, Just Us--By Peggy Dugan French--United States

A Night by the River, Just Us

the crackling fire dances with the night
the river faithfully glides towards the sea       
ancient pines hover, elegant in the firelight
their fragrance perfuming the night
the sky ablaze with stars, blankets us
the moon peeks over the ridge
slowly the fire fades with the night
we slip into the darkness . . .
river song in our dreams
