I wrote a poem about our little boat cruise

I wrote it mostly to bring pleasant memories to the folk who took it and our editor of the church newsletter liked it and so she will publish it in the September issue, along with the article I wrote on the whole day.

I hope that you will enjoy this little poem.

Cruising on the Grand River

Flat boat glides along calm river
Gentle waves slap sides
Muddy brown water under bow
Flows by tree lined banks.

Water lilies float on surface
Turtles sun on rocks exposed
Fish jump, making circles
On placid waterway.

Roast beef dinner served
Home made bread & pie
Strolling fiddle player
Music while we dine.

Farms and trailer parks
Dot the river banks
As the cruise boat
Moves along the Grand.

The journey finally over
Well fed, contented people
Disembark and go their way
Back to where they came from.

I would certainly recommend this trip to others, should they enjoy being on the water. Everything was very pleasant and time well spent.

Have a great day!

That is a wonderful poem about the boat cruise and I think the other members of the group would love it too.
