Water Fantasy

O brown brook, O blithe brook, what will you say to me
If I take off my heavy shoon and wade you childishly?

   O take them off, and come to me.
   You shall not fall. Step merrily!

But, cool brook, but, quick brook, and what if I should float
White-bodied in your pleasant pool, your bubbles at my throat?
