Poem by Lanier, published in 1883 and reprinted in Poems (1884). Mainly in iambics, with a variation of meters to produce musical sounds, the poem is an onomatopoetic expression of the river's flow “to be mixed with the main,” obeying “the voices of Duty” to turn the mills and water the fields during its course.
