Poems on the Delaware River and Her Tributaries
N. Thomas Johnson-Medland
Rivers are not only about themselves and the way they curve and cut across landscapes and time, but about an overall geology of the soul that goes on in each life--all life. Carrying things into our lives and away from our lives is just one of the mysteries of rivers and the tributaries that build them. These poems of life and living in the precincts of the Delaware River and her tributaries underscore the relationship that we have with the wetness, power, passion, shape, and presence of waters in our lives. Take a dip and be changed. Open yourself to their wonder.
