Wood River Windings

Just south of Courval ran
the crookedest river in the world, or
in Canada, or at least in our province

Crookedest river somewhere we were sure
which for some reason that I don’t recall
was always a source of great pride

Others might make the same claim
although no-one seems to be in a hurry
to claim their river as the straightest

The one with the least curves, switchbacks,
sand bars, and surprises around each bend

The one like the life we sometimes wish
but would never want

Because the heart is bigger than trouble, and the heart is bigger than doubt, But the heart sometimes needs a little help ,to figure that out
