Salmon Lead the Way

At the last salmon swim upriver triumphantly, displaying their richest colour. Rocks, cascades and predators notwithstanding.

Leaping, yes leaping

The goal is at the source

And not a rock

Or obstacle will

Stray you from your course.

The stream you know

Its thrilling flow

Now seems to push you back

But you must swim

Faith’s verve and vim

Renewing your attack.

And rapids show

Your prowess so

And glorious red of years

Gleams on your side

Complete this ride

The End becalms all fears.
