Sunshine on the Rippling Flow

The ripples of the water ran
Below the old wood bridge
Besides that old and shaky span
Swayed dry reeds and green sedge

The ripples glistened in the sun
On waters to the east
But darkly out the waters run
As they flow to the west

The bridge it cast its shadow there
So ripples all seem dark
And all was silent everywhere
No lark sang in the air

The skylark now comes with the spring
As days they grow more long
Rejoice all in a little thing
As small birds sing a song

All ripples on the water glow
When sun shines from above
There’s joy in it, all yet may know
Through small things all find love
