Stanza 6 
A nomad, a tramp.
He doesn't choose one place
 To set up his camp.

The River’s a winder,
 Through valley and hill.
He twists and he turns,
He just cannot be still.

The River’s a hoarder,
And he buries down deep
Those little treasures
That he wants to keep.

The River’s a baby,
He gurgles and hums,
And sounds like he’s happily sucking his thumbs.

The River’s a singer,
As he dances along,
The countryside echoes
The notes of his song.

                                                                                  The River’s a monster
                                                                                  Hungry and vexed,
                                                                                  He’s gobbled up trees
                                                                                  And he’ll swallow you next.
