On a boat, just me and her, and as I'm about to kiss her she whispers, "Wait, watch how the Moon flickers in the winter river. The crescent Moon's silver shadow shimmers and as the cold wind delivers a chilly ripple, the shadow shivers."

Use shiver–or some form of the word—in a poem of exactly 44 words. The form is up to you. Shiver in rhyme, or shiver in free verse. Shiver in the past, present, or future.
I’ve chosen to write a free verse poem with each line’s end word rhyming with ‘shiver’. I listened to one of my favorite rolling stones track while I wrote this poem.
