Two Rivers

The river from the east

flowed down the countryside.

It said,

Born of a spring, I am clean

It takes work

to provide water for all in sight.

The animals drink from me

I give of myself freely.

I try to do the right.

The river from the south

provided another flow.

It said,

I am powerful

fast and quick

partly born from melted snow.

I cannot help but be

more than a little muddy

Because I gather as I go.

Muddy said to Spring,

“Why not join with me?”

It said,

“We could be a team

and combine.

It is time for us to be.

We will run our course

and become a great force.

We can truly flow freely.

Spring said to Muddy,

“Only if I can remain pure.”

Muddy replied,

“Of course you can, I am sure.”

Two rivers converged

and it tried with all its might.

It is now said,

“The spring was overcome

no longer pure

it is a muddy sight.

Learn this one thing

mud corrupts a spring.

A muddy river flows down the countryside.
