Where Go The Boats?

Where Go The Boats? by Robert Louis Stevenson

Dark brown is the river,
Golden is the sand
tumblr_lfuhhdweHp1qfhvvko1_500It flows along forever,
With trees on either hand.

Green leaves a-floating,
Castles of the foam,
Boats of mine a-boating
Where with all come home?

On goes the river
And out past the mill,
Away down the valley,
Away down the hill.

Away down the river,
A hundred miles or more,
Other little children
Shall bring my boats ashore

I've spent a lot of time and miles in canoes...and I have yet to see that much crack in any boat anywhere near me!

Peace <3

Haha, Jay. Normally you wouldn't want to see a crack in a canoe, but I do like this kind of crack, LOL.
