Song Of The Waterfall

High up in the mountains where the air is fresh and cool
A bubbling spring flows down into a deep awaiting pool
It’s here the waters start upon their journey clear and long
Thus begins the melody of a wondrous nature song

You can watch the pooling water start on its slow cascade
It moves into a flowing stream that melting snow has made
A little further down the way if you should take a look
The stream joins with the waters of a gently flowing brook

Here the stream and brook combine to graciously deliver
Gifts of pure clean water to a clearly flowing river
The waters of the river move serene and calm at first
Allowing many animals to come and quench their thirst

The water quickly picks up speed as on its way it goes
And you can hear it start to sing as o’er the rocks it flows
The water swiftly flows out to a tall and rocky ledge
Turning into a wondrous sight while tumbling o’er the edge 

A beautiful misty rainbow's formed by its falling flight
To see the dancing water is a most impressive sight
You can hear its soft sweet music as it tumbles right along 
Singing a lovely chorus of the waters falling song
