I’ll come down to the river
You won’t have to wait too long
I’ll bring the sandwiches and coffee
I’ll be there just before dawn.

Don’t forget to bring your jacket
It might be cold that time of day
The sun will just be coming up
The sky will still be grey.

We’ll head down to the inlet
They’ll be bigger boats out there
We’ll stay within the channel
The weather should be fair.

By noon the sun will be out
The current won’t be strong
We’ll head out to the point
It won’t take us very long.

A day out on the river
There is no better place.
The ripples in the water
Feel the breeze upon your face.

    1. Yes, “stanza”….
      “a group of lines forming the basic recurring metrical unit in a poem; a verse.”
      I looked it up. 🙂
      Thank you, Linda! I appreciate your comments!
      Hope all goes well with your manuscripts! I’m working on children’s illustrated books. Got the first one up on Amazon…. KDP. It’s a Kindle ebook. Can be read on a kindle, an iPad or a cell phone. Trying to get it up “on line”, in paperback.
      Major learning curve!
