Sit Down by the River and Be Still. - L. Gruger

"Sit Down by the River and Be Still" by me, L. Gruger

“Come, come to me. Sit here, rest awhile.

Maybe you would like to go with me a ways.

We can look at the clouds and the sky and see joy

and sorrow and birth and death,

and we can laugh and cry together.

Look up and down. Both ways

you will see into the river, no banks

no bottom, deep and

constantly moving.”

Richard Stine
