A Poem About the Tour of the Bull Run Watershed

 

 

bull run watershed tour
what clean water there is, sans manure
cold snow and icy roads
too cold to see the toads
this system be gravity fed
and the water contains no lead
bring warm clothes and a sack lunch
so you can have something to munch
the water brought to you is cold
it is better for the fish we're told
if you ever find the time to take a look
its far better than reading a book

 

-By Portland State University students Tatyana Shiyenkova, Eli Murphy, and Micheal Kim

students in Catherine Howell's class which studies the workings of the Portland Water Bureau
