The Road That Runs Beside The River Analysis

follows the river as it bends

along the valley floor,

going the way it must.

Where water goes, so goes the road,

if there's room (not in a ravine,

gorge), the river

on your right or left. Left is better: when you're driving,

it's over your elbow across

the road.

You see the current, which is

what the river is: the river

in the river, a thing sliding fast forward

inside a thing sliding not so fast forward.

Driving with, beside, the river's flow is good.

Another pleasure, driving against it: it's the same river

someone else will see

somewhere else downstream -- same play,

new theater, different set.

Wide, shallow, fairly fast,

roundy-stone streambed, rocky-land river,

it turns there or here -- the ground

telling it so -- draining dull

mountains to the north,

migrating, feeding a few hard-fleshed fish

who live in it. One small sandbar splits

the river, then it loops left,

the road right, and the river's silver

slips under the trees,

into the forest,

and over the sharp perpendicular

edge of the earth.
