I wrote this poem on the train en route to my son’s graduation back in 2011.

RIVER OF GOLD

.

A droplet in the ocean

no different than the rest

The world is filled with motion

yet there seems no special quest

.

There’s such a special journey

for one that is so small

A ripple, one of many

some are heading for a fall

.

Life gives them such a blessing

with gifts for all to seek

Within is where they’re hiding

and the secret is to peek

.

Search for true hidden talents

the playful ones count too

Don’t let them say it’s nonsense

deep inside you have the cue

.

To learn the many reasons

for this and that and how

Till knowledge is the river

leads to taking such a bow

.

The prize is yours forever

to take you far and wide

The river it is golden

rippling ever more with pride
