A flowing stream

Written by: Robert Davidson

I was in the Yorkshire Dales
just the other day,
and sat where Emily Bronte
used to sit and play.

I gazed into the water
just below my feet;
it brought words of inspiration,
so pure yet oh so sweet.

Rapturous ovations
seemed to burst into the air,
making me pause and wonder 
if Emily was still there!

A gentle breeze whispered 
quietly in my ear,
'This stream is full of magic
come listen and you'll hear;


The drip, drip, drip, dripping
of the water from above,
bringing tender, caring, meaning
of peace and hope and love.'
