Spell for Encanto Creek
Tall blades of tufted grasses, keep on flowing. Towhees like good ideas, keep on flowing. Pooled water, black in shadow, green in sunshine, With wild olives bending down to drink, Those figures coming daily to the bridge To look at their two shadows on your surface, Keep them returning, keep them coming back.
