The River of DNA

2 May 2021

By Philip Kuepper

The art of rowing
(Rowing is more than sport.)
is to sense in the rays of a sunrise
the boat and oars
sensed at day’s end in a sunset;
to sense in the starting out
the arriving at;
to feel in one’s veins the course to be rowed
without ever having rowed it.
The art of rowing
is to have been born to row
without even knowing what “to row” is.
