The Singing Stone by Bradley Thomas

In a flowing brook bed 
Water rushed over 
A large smooth black stone 
Embedded above the other smaller ones 

You could hear the water 
Gently breaking against it 
The trees spoke in the wind 
Amid the dusk sun bathed flowers 

In the evening light 
The song of the stone remains the same 
A treasured memory 
Of a calm fall evening
