First Descents River Poetry by "SLAM"


Here is a SICK poem about the river, kayaking and cancer!! It was written by an amazing camper "SLAM" at the last First Descents Colorado kayak camp for this year!! An amazing experience it was to spend a week with the campers and First Descents!! ENJOY!!


-Nick "Burn"

First Descents: 2010 Adele Ramos

We got off the plane

Not sure what to expect

Would it be a first descent?

Or a first eject

The road was windy

The future unknown

We were truly out of our comfort zone

All survivors

Far and Near

Cancer Crushers

Crushing Fear

With the river in front of us

We were on our way

Ready for

A brand new day

Sway your hips

From side to side

Kayak straight

An’ enjoy the ride

Rock the Rapids

Ride the Waves

Boof the Rocks

Surf and Save

The swift and the quick

Guide that stick

An’ paddle on your way

This river battle

Runs deep and shallow

So get down low

Learn how to roll

Wipe that splash from your face

Wet exit when you need to

All you do is lean in through

There is no such disgrace

Pick up that boat

To return to float

With a smile on your face

Cancer led us to this place

7W greased the wheels

I am not sure why I ended up here

Yet, I’m loving how it feels

When these days come to an end

I will look to see your faces again

All locked in

An eddy flower

Floating on Water

Flying on Power

Row, Row, Row your Boat

That’s all you have to do to stay afloat

Sway Your Hips

From Side to Side

We Rock this River with FD Pride
