Christina: The River Nymph


The River Nymph exists
It's true!
She lives near the river banks
not far from me and you---
But you never see her
and I rarely do
She's busy keeping
the River at bay
so it won't overflow
at the end of the day......
She drinks up the Rain
and lives for the Dew
she's tiny and beautiful
delicate to view
I believe in the River Nymph
I believe that she's dear
and so I don't worry
when storm clouds are near.
