The fountain’s low singing is heard over all.

.

The fountain’s low singing is heard on the wind,
Like a melody bringing sweet fancies to mind;
Some to grieve, some to gladden: around them they cast
The hopes of the morrow, the dreams of the past.
Away in the distance is heard the vast sound,
From the streets of the city that compass it round,
Like the echo of mountains, or ocean’s deep call;
Yet that fountain’s low singing is heard over all.
Letitia Elizabeth Landon
