River, Subdued

River, Subdued 

Nowhere else to go
Unless you stand here and brood
Now, climb into the boat
In the river, subdued

Not a person to be seen
Only reflections of the atmosphere:
Hills, snow, trees, clouds, birds
Steady paddle, steer, dear 

When we finally discover 
Dock cleats to secure the lines to,
Note the trouble before your boat
In the river, subdued
