THE STILL STANDING STONE

THE STILL STANDING STONE
------------------------
I stopped, then stared
As its waters dropped
Descending delicately
As a fountain's flood

If parched from thirst
Would have timelessly 
Tasted the drink
Sipping slowly the drops
Dripping from the sink

The swift and steady slips
Dipped into a circular creek
As a faucet would fill
The rounded ring of a tub

OH!!! How sedate the rock sat
Gushing clear/crystal streams
Who loudly called me though lipless
With the sweetest of sounds

Ironic how once a man
With rod tapped a boulder
Bursting open a blast
Of rivers rushing over

Not a carnal claim
To coincide or exclaim
How a resting reef
Could rise the recollection
To relish revelation through
The streaming sounds 
Swift and steadily sliding 
From a sloping stone
That the royal rock 
Who rinsed three million mouths
Could remind me so rapidly
It reigns to revive
Still it stands as I sawest it
Wading well and alive
