THE RIVER-GOD'S SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Do not fear to put thy feet
Last Line: And not a wave shall trouble thee.
Subject(s): Rivers


Do not fear to put thy feet
Naked in the river sweet;
Think not leech, or newt, or toad
Will bite thy foot when thou hast trod;
Nor let the water, rising high,
As thou wadest, make thee cry,
And sob; but ever live with me,
And not a wave shall trouble thee.
