Rock and River

Rock & River
We’ve tamed the river
Far below
A dam built down a ways

The Colorado
Takes a pause
Between a hundred million days

Yet still it lives
In silent scream
O’er temporary stays

The power of the earth
To move
Beneath the surface lays

For creatures come
And creatures go
Beneath the sun’s blue rays

But rock and river
Will one day have their say
