Babbling Brook by pcoulson

Babbling Brook

Came across this brook today and it reminded me of the Poem by Christopher Tye

By the babbling brook I rest myself,
Watching damsel-flies hovering above the water,
Fish darting around for food and shelter,
Birds on the wing looking for their food,
Water boatmen swimming around without a care in the world,
The gentle breeze dropping petals into the water,
The banks covered in lush green grass,
The bull rushes and water lilies slowly spreading,
A little twig floating by towards the bridge,
The merry song of nature and water in harmony,
The afternoon sun glinting of the water,
Why would I want to be anywhere else but here,
By the babbling brook is the place to be.

Evocative shot and poem. Wish I could hear the babbling!

That's a great shot Peter - and a great little poem read. And for some reason I have to go to the bathroom!

Great light and PoV.. love this.. your water looks like water, bubbling and gurgling along, splashing over the weir.. a great find and a wonderful depiction..

@jorlam Thank you for your beautiful comments, I'm not a big fan of white milky water either Jorlam, I could have chosen The Brook - Poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson equally suitable for this image, see the link :)

There is something mesmerising about flowing water. And I just love the word "babbling"

@terryliv Your absolutely right about flowing water Terry I like the word babbling meaning:- (of a stream) make the continuous murmuring sound of water flowing over stones:)
