Beneath the ageless bridge the water flows
And gentle breezes blow to ring the chimes
As from the bank I watch the river go –
A stream that goes from dawn to end of time.
A time long gone, a world long passed away,
Can still be seen from this enchanted place
Even to this very modern day
A brief reprieve from modern breakneck pace.
