Yes. I like it.

Did I convince you that some rivers freeze over?

no sir. regardless of what you see,
a river never really freezes.

got a haiku for you snowbirds to
warm up to...


spring walk
mother forgets
her cane

Levon, Of course, the entire river doesn't freeze solid. But, for the purpose of a duck (or an ice-fisher) swimming across or walking across it certainly does freeze over.

well now in my estimation it's what's beneath the surface that really counts. i wouldn't take a chance on that ice, anymore than
i'd stroll through a texas gully during a thunderstorm.
