Shimmering Waters

Written by: Emma Buckeridge

Glancing at shimmering waters I saw my reflection
Rippling water makes myself look altered
Like an abstract painting that never falters

Glancing at shimmering waters I saw the moon arise
Oh bright angelic wonder, you are so beautiful
Let the stream flow to my peaceful soul

Glancing at shimmering watching water boatmen ski
Smiling at the frog that hunts him down for his tea
Water lilies in full bloom and dancing in the breeze

Glancing at shimmering waters I saw my reflection
The sun admires himself in the mirror of the stream
And I sit at glance at my reflection once again
