Flow

To the stone, to the hill, to the heap, to the seep,
to the drip, to the weep, to the rock, to the rill,
to the fell, to the wash, to the splash, to the rush,
to the bush, to the creep, to the hush;

to the down, to the plain, to the green, to the drift,
to the rift, to the graft, to the shift, to the break,
to the shake, to the lift, to the fall, to the roll,
to the wall, to the cleft, to the call;

to the bend, to the wend, to the wind, to the run,
to the roam, to the rend, to the seam, to the foam,
to the scum, to the moss, to the mist, to the grist,
to the grind, to the grain, to the dust;

to the core, to the gorge, to the grove, to the cave,
to the dive, to the shore, to the grave, to the give,
to the leave, to the oar, to the song, to the tongue,
to the ring, to the roar, to the sung;

to the surge, to the flood, to the blood, to the urge
to the rage, to the rod, to the rood, to the vein,
to the chain, to the town, to the wide, to the tide,
to the breadth, to the depth, to the side;

to the neap, to the spring, to the deep, to the drag,
to the fog, to the stick, to the slick, to the log,
to the twig, to the tug, to the roil, to the shell,
to the swell, to the ebb, to the well, to the sea.
