The Brook by Ellen Carhart









The Brook 

by Ellen Carhart


From a fountain

In a mountain,

Drops of water ran,

Trickling through the grasses

So our brook began.


Slow it started;

Soon it darted,

Cool and clear and free,

Rippling over pebbles,

Hurrying to the sea.


Children straying

Came a-playing

On its pretty banks:

Glad, our little brooklet

Sparkled up its thanks.


Blossoms floating,

Mimic boating,

Fishes darting past,—

Swift and strong and happy,

Widening very fast,


Bubbling, singing,

Rushing, ringing,

Flecked with shade and sun,

Soon our pretty brooklet

To the sea has run.
