The Negro Speaks of Rivers Project

I’ve known rivers:

I’ve known rivers that show the roots of my past, present, and future.

From the Arkansas River where Cherokees raised families.

From The Daugava river where Latvians struggled

To The Seine which fighting grandparents traveled through

And to the Los Angeles River where new lives are started

 

I’ve known rivers and will know rivers

As my past, present, and future command it
