Oh little drop of water, what times you have seen!
Floating in clouds & running in streams –
hanging in ice & sparkling in sun-beams.
From when time began & the age of the dinosaur,
to this sparkling rock pool of blues and greens.
I’ve seen you in the morning dew & in the rain –
felt you in a summer shower & winter’s cold refrain.
I’ve felt you course through my body & on my skin.
Shared your life-giving essence with my very kin.
