A dancing fountain Played in a limpid pool, The gently falling cascade Rippled the water where cool Golden fish swam together harmoniously.
Creeping shadows Formed architectural shapes In dark patched on the lawn. In the shade, waiting to meet their friends, People stood ready to take their seats.
An orchestra played Under a white canopy, And the sounds it made Drifted on the evening air Delighting the people listening there.
The final chords died away The singers took their bows. The audience cheered, and the garden walls Echoed the applause and the hearty encores. Then it was over and the people had gone .
Alone in the garden the fountain wept And the golden fish peacefully slept.
