Water From The Lethe



The sun was only up for a few hours
reflecting on the water of the Lethe,
a healing place to free your soul from age.
Day after day the throng missed this site
as if they never had being told.
Guarded by an old tree on a hill
sometimes the ground around would seep and spill
bringing new life to all within the Lethe.
Looks like a beautiful place to be
untouched by human hands, no one I see,
where fresh water came from an overflow -
who would have guessed this magic one day I would know.
