Clade Song 7

Last Morning

Though the river is attentive
Drought eliminates its stretch
Past the embankment the river slows
Wends around a sun pier
Curls off beyond the trees
Where does it end?
I am in the green world unprepared
For a long walk through dust
To find the answers
Everything strange with bugs
