"Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand."
-William Butler Yeats
I have a love/hate relationship with the river near our house - I hate it when it's high and raging because it scares me and I have known of too many drownings, and I love it when it is calm and playful and we can use it as an extension of our backyard.
