Kansas City's Brush Creek

BRUSH CREEK

 
The bridge, a languid cat, arches the creek;
     The amber water flows in endless haste.
     The trees, stern sentinels, ignore the waste,
Yet for their well groomed look her bounty seek.

The sloping banks with fragrant moisture reek,
     Frail bits of vine about the ground form lace.
The bridge, a languid cat, arches the creek;
The amber water flows in endless haste.

The sky, a sea, with stars like sail boats sleek,
     Reflections in the stream a pattern trace
     Of street lights, should the clouds but hide the face
Of stars.  Yet from the water sparks would peek.
The bridge, a languid cat, arches the creek;
The amber water flows in endless haste.

--Nora Coots.
