The Waterfall

Tinkle, tinkle!

Listen well!

Like a fairy silver bell

In the distance ringing,

Lightly swinging

In the air;

'Tis the water in the dell

Where the elfin minstrels dwell,

Falling in a rainbow sprinkle,

Dropping stars that brightly twinkle,

Bright and fair,

On the darkling pool below,

Making music so;

'Tis the water elves who play

On their lutes of spray.

Tinkle, tinkle!

Like a fairy silver bell;

Like a pebble in a shell;

Tinkle, tinkle!

Listen well!
