The Moselle

Along the Moselle

A silver snake slipping between green hills

Red and white houses looking out over the water.

A flock of birds skim across the silent river

And time slows as we float past vine-covered slopes.

Regiments of ripening grapes line the terraces

And in every village a lego-like church spire

Points skywards – while we glide below a bridge

Linking each bank with structured elegance

Connecting in a swifter, busier way.
