Red river, Father, red river rising, Sister. Watch as I ripen into full bloom. As a sylvan scarlett sprig does when rich, behold my napalm flowering, branches luminous with pealing flame, and, in Summer, I thrive, each petal chasing my Sky King, yearning for his tender tending, tilling, pruning, paring and shaping offering a route, a direction for my spread to beyond horizons, growing into duty, growing into purity and that red river is clear and my pinking petals spread into a heart of colour all around.
