Return of the Shad: Part I

They spoke of shad,

and their return,

to a river,

once thought unsuitable,

their numbers brought down,

by run-off,

water made too hot,

by us,

thirsting for more power.

 

The power source shut down,

this river is cool

once more,

and the shad are back,

leaping over a dam,

the river welcoming,

their straining bodies,

home.
