A glint of light,
Dancing under ferns and shadows,
Flowing water bright.
I hear its murmur,
A passing whisper of times gone by,
Halcyon days of sunshine and meadow dew,
Music amongst the grasses high.
Nevermore will the magic fall
In darkling woods and hidden dells
As steel and concrete cover all,
Only my longing heart will tell…
…the wonders that were lost.
