River Quotes (257 quotes)
River of Life
The more we live, more brief appear Our life's succeeding stages; A day to childhood seems a year, And years like passing ages. The gladsome current of our youth, Ere passion yet disorders, Steals lingering like a river smooth Along its grassy borders. But as the careworn cheek grows wan, And sorrow's shafts fly thicker, Ye stars, that measure life to man, Why seem your courses quicker? When joys have lost their bloom and breath, And life itself is vapid, Why, as we reach the Falls of Death Feel we its tide more rapid? It may be strange—yet who would change Time's course to slower speeding, When one by one our friends have gone, And left our bosoms bleeding? Heaven gives our years of fading strength Indemnifying fleetness; And those of youth, a seeming length, Proportion'd to their sweetness. Nice poem Report Reply.

Add to list. The casual drift of a rivers flow Over cascading rapids and undertow. Of secrets captured on floating leaves Carving out its own course with ease. The abundance of life that dwells within. The water spills forth in urgent spin. Life is like a river can you devour the taste.
