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

and jumped.

Just two Mama’s on the river with two babes.
