water is a thing of beauty

Everywhere water is a thing of beauty
gleaming in the dewdrop;
singing in the summer rain;
shining in the ice-gems till the leaves all seem to turn to living jewels;
spreading a golden veil over the setting sun,
or a white gauze around the midnight moon.

~John Ballantine Gough
