The River

You are camping by the River,
where no one bothers you all summer.
Your friends move away in fall,
saying that the River is going to rise.
You move your tent a little away from the River,
but not into town like the rest.
You like the quiet.
In the morning, you find that your tent is now on an island
And the River is rushing so hard you can't get to shore.

You're stuck there for three days
until the River is safe enough to wade.
