It's heartening to think a river can still make a difference

"So west among the trafficked fields,
then south, then east, to join the ample
Huron on its curve beneath a one-lane bridge.
This bridge lacks every grace but one,
that a sort of throwback space for courteous digression:
your turn, mine, no matter how late we are,
even the county engineers were forced
to take this road off plumb.
It's heartening to think a river makes a difference."


Linda Gregerson, Waterborne
