Riverside

Two dads take their collective kids out
The end of the outing; time on the water.
Students on holiday take turns to turn
The wheel on their motorboat; number 13.
The couples pay the nut brown ferryman
His chains draw them gently across the river.
Children waving from a tourist launch
Get eager responses from both banks.
A man in Miranda impresses Valerie, his date,
With his rowing skill; she smiles serenely.
I sit alone on the bank and watch.
