On rivers #3... the Banjo

Alliteration! How to evoke an image (taste, smell, time, touch, sensation!) in two perfect lines....poetry in motion. 
Look at the picture, read the words. Enough said.

"Oh! rocky range and rugged spur and river running clear,
That swings around the sudden bends with swirl of snow-white foam"
       - from The Wind's Message by Banjo Paterson
