    Default Escape


    She runs as fast as she can
    Down the rugged grade to the flats below
    Around the stones forgotten, left behind by time
    Marking her way she rings out music
    Not music of man but of nature
    She dashes to and fro jumping for joy at her freedom
    The canopy of green provides rest from the sun
    And she roars ever more as the grade increases
    She is a grand ole lady full of life
    Rushing ahead as though someone awaits
    at the end of her journey, yet no one is there
    She carries within her a world of life
    They take from her all they need
    And give back only their own no more
    Insects, crustaceans, and trout call her home
    I sit by her side, listen and admire
    I play in her pools fooling her trout
    She gives me peace, an escape from life.

    I don't live just to fish, but I want to fish just as long as I live.
