First Line: Now it's water I'll have to live beside
Last Line: And an old, old promise broken.
Subject(s): Water


Now it's water I'll have to live beside
If it's only a brook through a hollow,
It needn't be deep, nor yet be wide,
But alive for my eyes to follow.

Alive, with a voice that my heart may know
And a tale that my heart may hearken.
Over it swiftly wind will blow
As each day's shadows darken.

And the way of the water and wind will bring
Rest from a word once spoken,
Forgetfulness of a dreary thing,
And an old, old promise broken.
