THE BROOK: SUMMER, by            
First Line: Clustering ferns lie cool
Last Line: Beside the current's murmuring.
Subject(s): Brooks; Collective Behavior; Pleasure; Streams; Creeks; Mobs; Crowds

Clustering ferns lie cool
In the depths of the pool,
Where the bridge arches low
Above the languid, lucid flow;
And where shadows play
On a miniature bay
Near the farther bank there sway
Slender sweet-flags crowding close;
And a multitude of loose,
Tiny, clean, cool, green
Sphered leaflets here fling
A dotted silken carpeting
For a space, a little place,
Beside the current's murmuring.
