To the river

There are steps to the water
and I don’t know why
Something with meaning
in times now passed by

Perhaps for a boatman
to access his craft
For trade on the river
to board fore and aft

Perhaps for some access
for folk who lived near
and needed to get
to the river right here

Suffice now to say
on this morning in June
it gives me a place
to hum a nice tune

and write down some words
of this place I have found
by the Thames here in Kew
with peace all around
