A STICK A STONE IT'S THE END OF THE ROAD
IT'S THE REST OF A STUMP IT'S A LITTLE ALONE
IT'S A SLIVER OF GLASS IT IS LIFE IT'S THE SUN
IT IS NIGHT IT IS DEATH IT'S ATRAP IT'S A GUN
THE OAK WHEN IT BLOOMS A FOX IN THE BRUSH
THE KNOT OF THE WOOD THE SONG OF A THRUSH
THE WOOD OF THE WIND A CLIFF A FALL
A SCRATCH A LUMP IT IS NOTHING AT ALL
IT'S THE WIND BLOWING FREE IT'S THE END OF THE SLOPE
IT'S A BEAM IT'S A VOID IT'S A HUNCH IT'S A HOPE
AND THE RIVERBANK TALKS OF THE WATERS OF MARCH
IT'S THE END OF THE STRAIN IT'S THE JOY IN YOUR HEART
THE FOOT THE GROUND THE FLESH AND THE BONE
THE BEAT OF THE ROAD A SLINGSHOT STONE
A FISH A FLASH A SILVERY GLOW
A FIGHT A BET THE RANGE OF A BOW
THE BED OF THE WELL THE END OF THE LINE
THE DISMAY IN THE FACE IT'S A LOSS IT'S A FIND
A SPEAR A SPIKE A POINT A NAIL
A DRIP A DROP THE END OF THE TALE
A TRUCKLOAD OF BRICKS IN THE SOFT MORNING LIGHT
THE SHOT OF A GUN IN THE DEAD OF THE NIGHT
A MILE A MUST A THRUST A BUMP
IT'S A GIRL IT'S A RHYME IT'S A COLD IT'S THE MUMPS
THE PLAN OF THE HOUSE THE BODY IN BED
AND THE CAR THAT GOT STUCK IT'S THE MUD IT'S THE MUD
A FLOAT A DRIFT A FLIGHT OF WING
A HAWK A QUAIL THE PROMISE OF SPRING
AND THE RIVERBANK TALKS OF THE WATERS OF MARCH
IT'S THE PROMISE OF LIFE IT'S THE JOY IN YOUR HEART
A SNAKE A STICK IT IS JOHN IT IS JOE
IT'S A THORN IN YOUR HAND AND A CUT IN YOUR TOE
A POINT A GRAIN A BEE A BITE A BLINK
A BUZZARD A SUDDEN STROKE OF NIGHT
A PIN A NEEDLE A STING A PAIN
A SNAIL A RIDDLE A WASP A STAIN
A PASS IN THE MOUNTAINS
A HORSE AND A MULE
IN THE DISTANCE THE SHELVES
ROAD THREE SHADOWS OF BLUE... AND THE RIVERBANK TALKS…

COMMENT:
This song, through its’ beauty and nuance taught me about life.
It gave me a sweet glimpse into what could be in store for me.
If I let it…….
I did.
