This is very beautiful. I like how you start speaking of the emotions, and then have that idea flow into all your other stanzas, showing "joy" and showing the crash, and then the change of path. It was very well-done.

This is for a review you asked for three months ago.
The last three stanzas are pretty good, but I'd say the first three need a lot of work. The images you're using are kind of the things that a lot of people think about when they think of rivers, maybe bring in tides, geological processes, etc. (Yes I know that sounds stupid for a poem but you can find a lot of inspiration through research, try erosion, rivers in the American West, those are some of the few clear ones.)Just some greater complexity like the latter part. And I definitely think that in the fourth stanza "intrigues" isn't the right word, "delights", "rhapsodizes" would work better. Nevertheless you're doing so many good things in this poem, I really like the idea of someone being like a (classical) element. It's also sweet, I imagined it as something that you'd give to someone for Prom (well, my friends would at least, and me too probably...)
