“Water”  

The water understands

Civilization well;

It wets my foot, but prettily,

It chills my life, but wittily,

It is not disconcerted,

It is not broken-hearted:

Well used, it decketh joy,

Adorneth, doubleth joy:

Ill used, it will destroy,

In perfect time and measure

With a face of golden pleasure

Elegantly destroy.

  1. Great post in celebration! Can’t resist adding this Philip Larkin poem, it’s quite short, hope you don’t mind!

    Water

    If I were called in
    To construct a religion
    I should make use of water.
    Going to church
    Would entail a fording
    To dry, different clothes;
    My liturgy would employ
    Images of sousing,
    A furious devout drench,
    And I should raise in the east
    A glass of water
    Where any-angled light
    Would congregate endlessly.
