A river flows in silence.
It thinks ere turning.
This is the silent river, which thinks before flowing and turns carefully. Similarly, people should think thoroughly before making any kind of decision. Many rivers and streams flow and turn spontaneously and forcefully. But the people who make informed decisions, are patient and plan ahead of time. These people are rewarded with happiness.
Ere: before (archaic)
The poem is written in Haiku form, with iambic meter.
