How Will You Be With the Water?

How will you be with the water?
Will you sit on the dock
And dangle your feet
Or tenderly dip in one toe?
Will you splash with your hand
Or dunk in your face,
Firmly holding your nose?
Will you fall unprepared
And risk drowning?
Or stand 10 feet away and stay dry?
Or will you simply jump in
And swim and swim,
Trusting your muscles to glide?
