The Mystic Fountain (poem)

Once there was a mystic fountain in a quiet little town

People came to visit her from places all around

Twas said for just one penny she could grant a simple wish

She could not move a mountain but she could produce a fish

-

She made the people happy was her greatest gift of all

She even had the kindness to give candy to the small

As time went on its destined course and people less confined

More people heard the story of a fountain they could find

-

The people came and people saw; twas not sheer fantasy

Except the cost of one small cent, a simple wish was free

The town’s folk grew more happy and also very rich

They lost their need wishes and the fountain’s little fish

-

Why should we take in pennies when its dollars we could rake

Think about the village and improvements we could make

They spoke about the fountain their source of wealth and fame

She looks quite old She needs big work. And let’s give her a name

-

There is a fountain with a legend in a prosperous town

People come to see it from all the world around

Tis said for just one dollar it could grant a single wish

It could even move a mountain or produce a simple fish
