the bend in the river where the cottonwoods grow

August 2, 2020

the city’s gonna kill me
if I don’t let it go
time to find a valley
where the living is slow

maples in September
mountains in the snow
the bend in the river
where the cottonwoods grow

deliver me from humbug
the never-ending show
time for some authentic
dirt beneath my toes

maples in September
mountains in the snow
the bend in the river
where the cottonwoods grow

time to grab my spirit
and hop upon a crow
that’s the only tonic
for my weary old soul

maples in September
mountains in the snow
the bend in the river
where the cottonwoods grow
