  1. I like the sounds in these lines. One can imagine the sound of that river.

  2. What a wonderful poem! “Crushing boulders as big as mastodons to pebbles, sand and river rocks…” What scope!

  3. Great poem. So much range. Bravo!

  4. A pleasure to read this poem. It really does have a rhythm that carried this reader along in the movement. The evolution of the river from might to tranquility is powerfully expressed.

  5. Really really nice.

  6. Another vision for me painted by my brother. I can’t be objective

  7. Reading your poem is like being there, and your poem is as mighty as “The Arkansas”….
