I splash around a river bend,
with nought a care in the world,
feeling the wind in my hair.
I fly past the trees,
and the small sandbanks,
using my oar to lever away from the sides.
all of a sudden, there is nothing below me,
and i soar, landing with a jolt.
my breath is gone, ripped right from my mouth.
i go even faster, going through rapids,
nearly crashing into the rocks,
spray wets my face, and i finally slow down,
coming to a stop in a lake.
the mountains are reflected in the calm waters,
and the eagles are flying hunting the fish.
i paddle to the middle, where my island rests,
and glide right past.
i continue down the river,
going even faster than before.
i go around a bend, and go straight down,
disappearing into the dark underground forever.
