Calm River

So calm and relaxing
As quiet as a mouse tip toeing across the room
Happy floating and swimming
Hills are as steep as a long side
The trees look so peaceful
Clouds everywhere
Huge rocks as big as mammoths
River as still as a statue
I want to be there with my family
To swim, fish and relax.
