We went down to the river yesterday,
two Mamas and two babes.
We dug and we waded,
made lakes and castles.
We watched some goslings and their protective Mama.
We ate oranges under a sculpture
and Italian sodas sun-blinded in a dark cafe.
We found rocks and shells
and sticks and mud.
We watched roller-coasters full of people.
We cooled our toes
and sat and talked
and ran and twirled
Just two Mama’s on the river with two babes.
