Down by the riverside (poem)

When time is tender
And the moon is full
Lay me down in a bed of grass
Down by the riverside

As the water is cool with the rush
And the clay baked warm from the suns touch
Let’s meet at the edge together
By the riverside, down by the riverside

You touch me here, I’ll touch you there
Let our clothes spill everywhere
Till were naked in the air
Down by the riverside

We won’t need no blanket for warmth
No pillow to hold our heads
Our arms will cradle us both
And the grass’ll be our beds
On the riverside, down by the riverside

With age old motion

you’ll belong to me like the river belongs to the ocean

our hearts sated by sweet emotion

spent, and weary we’ll sleep there

on the riverside, down by the riverside

And the night will give way to the day
After witnessing the love we made
Two hearts naked and unafraid
Down by the riverside.
