Love Me A River

As vexatious as this unfortunate estoppel was
I saw no need for me, in response, to cry foul
For the timeless beauty of this water course,
in the hands of lovers, would not be undone

After showing manly and clearing the obstruction
We floated ever so slowly down the naked stream
In another time our journey would have been called slovenly
But today, with love in the air, our travel was rather dreamy

Yet again as I dipped the oars into this crystal clear stream
She watched them gracefully slide with ease through the beck
Slowly she draped her shapely legs over the side of our vessel
And there, trailed them sensuously in the deep dark stream

A vibrant carpet of velvet green lined our wonderous stream
And as I slowly turned my expectant gaze to the bank
It became obvious to me, and rather disturbing at the least
That landing places for our love were rather sparse

But now with our love for each other insatiable
It ensured that quickly we beached out vessel
And there together, in love, we strolled hand in hand
Under a canopy of beautiful weeping willows

I beg forgiveness now for the lack of detail I do provide
But know that beside that river we did embrace our love
And though I am sure we would struggle to find the words
Yet for all our life, we will remember our river of love
