Hey there! Well, here's a poem about River Phoenix for all those fans of him out there. He was a brilliant actor and a great singer as well. He will be missed by all who knew him.

River Jude Phoenix

He was against eating meat,
as well as Hollywood's golden angel for all to see.

He made a great performance as Chris Chambers

in the film Stand By Me.


The phoenix soars above the clouds.
Its wings are made of fire.
And in the eyes of the phoenix named River,
we see big pools of desire.

He was ethically minded.
He disliked killing animals.
So he joined the group PETA,
as he had a love for mammals.

He was also a great musician.
He played the guitar very well.
His music was quite enchanting,
and he put the ladies under a spell.

He knew what the ladies were like,

and he was like a white-winged dove.

There was one game he played well,

and that was the game of love.

A short tumultuous life
was all that he had.
And when he died,
it made us all very sad.

The Viper Room was beautiful,
as beautiful as the sun.
And when River stepped over the threshold,
they turned, seeing that he was the one.


River Jude Phoenix.

He was beautiful, but the girls kept getting pricked by his thorns – like a rose.

He always knew what to say. And he was broody most of the time.


He steps over the threshold of the Viper Room,
moving as only he can.
He looks every inch of the dark guitar god
with a black guitar case in his hand.

He will never be forgotten,
and his fans believe
that he is an angel now
watching over all he sees.

He will always be remembered
for the films that his fans see,
such as The Thing Called Love
and Stand By Me.


Well, hope you liked it. I'm sure that River, if he had lived, would've loved it as well.

In loving memory of River Jude Phoenix (August 23, 1970-October 31, 1993).
