The Challenge

Thundering and roaring
O’er its rocky bed,
Comes the mighty river
From ice-capped mountains fed.
Crashing, surging, roaring,
Throwing foam flakes high,
It throws a daring challenge
Up at the summer sky.
“Nought can stop me going
To the distant sea,
And I will still be flowing,
Through eternity.”
