The Little Brook

From hillside spring to lake below
The waters dance and lightly flow
The same degree in every season
God pours his font with special reason

Sweet little stream, so diamond clear
Babbling songs for bird to hear
Jumps o're stones and rounds the bends
Its way through wooded hills it wends

Fresh from ground, the virgin flow
Carves a maze in wintry snow
But May with floral hues erupts
And laces it with buttercups

I sat beside her many a day
And whiled my youthful hours away
Cold, cold waters soothed my feet
In summer's overbearing heat

I wasted not one moment spent
Beside the waters which came and went
For memories of the stream remain
The babbling brook that has no name

Very well done, Liz - nicely captured images.
'Fresh from ground, the virgin flow' - like that.  K

Elizabeth, my friend -

You took me to
the babbling brook.
Through your eyes,
I got to look.

I got to dangle
my feet bare,
in the cool water
flowing there.

Makes me wish
for days of spring,
so I can wade
the brook again.

Thank you for
a little look,
at your singing
little brook.

The fact that
she has no name ...
makes her lovely
all the same.

Truly a beautiful poem (and place) Elizabeth! I could see it winding through the woods.
