Subject: RE: Acceptable adjectives in folk songs
Let's see how many "river" adjectives I can come up with in one place many of which have probably been give already):

River: Fast, swift, raging, rushing, rushy, slow, deep, shallow, wide, narrow, full, high, low, rocky, sandy, treacherous, dangerous, risky, wild, quiet, sleepy, lazy, dry, cold, clear, sparkling, muddy, murky, old, busy (with river traffic), angry perhaps, foamy or foaming, wandering, crooked.   Of course there are the subjective reaction words, like beautiful or lovely, pleasant.

I've run "dry". Any others?
