The Fountain

Into the sunshine,

Full of the light,

leaping and flashing

From morn till night!

Into the moonlight,

Whiten than snow.

Waving  so flower-like,

When the winds blow!

Into the starlight,

Rushing in spray,

Happy at midnight,

Happy by day!

Ever in motion,

Blithesome and cheery,

Still climbing heavenward,

Never a weary;

Glad of all weathers,

Still seeming best,

Upward or downword

Motion thy rest;

Full of a nature

Nothing can tame,

Changed every moment,

Ever the same

Ceaseless aspiring,

Ceaseless content,

Darkness or sunshine,

thy element;

Glorious fountain!

Let my heart be

Fresh, Changeful, constant,

Upward like thee!
