I saw something like this once as a child, never since, and you've brought that magical moment back so vividly.  And I loved 'pert as the nipples of a fool-hardy dipper' - wonderful image!

Another dimension added, with the threat to the survival of the tribe.  I like the way your narrator's certainties have shifted over the course of the story and the situation has become more complex.

I really liked this.  I thought the second stanza, especially the line 'It's the endpoint of a tributary leading back to a leg', was particularly effective.  Sad and evocative piece.
