Below is a poem which personifies a river.
Read the poem and go to the activity below it.
The river makes his way along
the mountain path he chooses
Shamelessly eroding rocks,
as on his way he cruises.
Starting at a steady pace,
he’s happy to go slow
And meanwhile smaller tributaries
come to join the flow.
Then he descends the mountain
as excitedly he speeds
Splishing, splashing, tumbling,
while onwards he proceeds.
Then all at once the heady heights
encourage him to dive…
Enthusiasm leads the way,
The river reaches base with one
almighty belly flop!
His bubbling intensity
Soon begins to show…
So he begins to grow
Swiftly riding on the rocks,
He weaves his way along.
Passing through the estuary
But keen to carry on.
Then finally, his destination
Comes within his view; the sea
is beckoning from waters deep and oh so blue…
So finally, what started as a river’s gentle motion
Is all encapsulated in the wide and mighty ocean.
