19 November – Raging river

Land-shaper,
ground reclaimer,
swelling with the flood
of moorland streams
and becks’ best dreams
pouring from above.
Storm snatcher,
deluge catcher,
racing full and free;
gush your ardour
into harbours,
re-fill the placid sea.
Express your rage,
we understand this stage,
you have to vent your flow
till you’re spent and drained
and restore restraint
by reinstating rippling low.
