The Mountain Brook
by Nixon Waterman

Slipping, sliding, dancing, gilding,
Goes the brook, so glad and gay;
Where the sun's bright beams abiding
Fleck with gold - the shining way,

Glancing, gleaming, babbling, beaming,
Till within the quiet pool,
'Neath the willow branches dreaming
Rests the brook - so calm and cool.

Crooning, curling, sparkling, whirling,
Calling, murm'ring all day long;
Foaming, swirling, playing, purling,
Sings the Brook its merry song.

Rushing, creeping, laughing, leaping,
Flows the brook by lane and lea,
Till it joins the river sweeping
Ever onward to the sea.
