Let's take a joy ride to the river bank Where we can picnic on the sands of time We can leave our worries at home And smile together as we watch the sunrise It takes a small drop of hope To turn lake to ocean But with good intention The horizon is open The colors of passion shine from the sky Red, orange and purple traced by clouds of white This river bank is beautiful my thoughts flow in my mind Like the water by my feet and the sand to my side
I love how you turned "joy ride" - which by itself would make me thing of cars, speed and action - but turn it back into its roots, "joy" becoming pastoral, about leisure, relaxation, and enjoying the beauty of the natural world together.
I love these two lines: "It takes a small drop of hope / to turn lake to ocean." Such a great point!!
