Here's a poem from Wendell Berry that is found in Leavings: Poems [811.6 BER]:
Give It Time
The river is of the earth
and it is free. It is rigorously
embanked and bound,
and yet is free. "To hell
with restraint," it says.
"I have got to be going."
It will grind out its dams.
It will go over or around them.
They will become pieces.
Let us not forget that Mother Nature always has the last word!

Coincidentally, Renée at No Water River is this week's Round-Up hostess. How can there be a "no water river"--what does it all mean? Renée's explanation of the blog name is found here.
