Scampering gaily o’er shimmering waves,
Gentle ripples, sparkling as sun
Warms the pebbles beneath,
Each motion of warmth within river’s breast.
Lilacs embrace their source of quenched thirst
As the sun heats the way
So their blossoms give birth.
With multitude shades of lilacs, and whites
Doth the river feed nutrients?
And quench thirst alight, of colour galore.
As beauty of colour develops each smile
And every breath breathed
Do scents caress air with wonder, mystic?
And aura supreme.
Now blossomed in full
Hath these lilacs all grown
Weighed with majestic beauty
This river embraces with pure divine grace!
