Letting Go

On the Battenkill

The river’s flow,

Steady and still.

Breathes let it go.


Feelings of loss

give way to peace.

In the river’s course

troubles may cease.


Pay heed to its story.

With help from its friends,

The river restored, 

We share in its glory.


From a polluted

Run off for 

Factories and mills.

A beautiful ribbon

Now winds through the hills.
