Babbling Brook

I'm a babbling brook

and merrily do I run

over rocks and stones

beneath the shining sun.


Up above are mountain tops

covered with trees of greens.

They reach up high to touch the sky

that their beauty may be seen.


On the road the people roam,

a relaxed twinkle in their eye.

With ease in their gate, they enter town late,

pausing to smile as they pass by.

That's a cute poem...I love mountain streams and am lucky to have one running within earshot of my home.

Very simple yet beautiful. It really paints a picture. :)

Thanks, Acaetnna!

W.K. Hayes: I adore mountains and streams. You must feel very fortunate indeed to live near such beauty!

Kookoo88: I found this in an old journal I kept and instantly fell in love with it. I thought about expanding on it, but felt that it was complete as it was and anything else would take away from that simplicity

I'm quite the babbling brook as well. I just keep on and keep on talking, and I just won't stop. Really, it's my fingers that are talking; and sometimes, kind people do smile as they pass by!

That's awesome! I think that's more worthwhile anyway. Yeah for deciding not to stay silent. Keep it up!

Oh, you shouldn't encourage me; I might try to impress you. . . . .and as it is, I'm trying to impress myself. Guess what? Sometimes I am successful!

Ha ha! I know that feeling well. It's always nice when you can look at some of your stuff and think, "Damn, but that's actually quite good!" And if we can't amuse ourselves, then what?

Hey, did you read my Zombie hub? I had fun with that; but I almost trashed the thing cause I thought everyone (except you) would say, "WTF!"

Thanks for the recommendation! I think sometimes the layout of all the stories is disadvantageous for catching topics that would be of personal interest, especially when some stories are just misfits with no specific label. Excellent hub, by the way!
