Chattahoochee (River)
Out of the hills of Habersham,
  Down the valleys of Hall,
I hurry amain to reach the plain:
  Run the rapid and leap the fall,
Split at the rock, and together again
  Accept my bed, or narrow or wide,
  And flee from folly on every side
With a lover’s pain to attain the plain,
    Far from the hills of Habersham,
    Far from the valleys of Hall.
        Sidney Lanier—The Song of the Chattahoochee.
