Thank you, too, for crashing into us when we run through you and for making sidewalks more slippery:
Thank you for each beautiful ripple, and for cooling our feet:
Thank you for making the colors of stones so vivid,
for finding your way to the roots,
for making things soggy,
for swimming with us.
Thank you for holding up all the fish.
Thank you for reflecting the trees and sun.
Thank you for cleansing us.
You are precious. Long may you flow!
