It is the precious element

The basis of all life

So why do we neglect it

Pollution now is rife

Why don’t we appreciate

What is given to us for free

Tumbling from the skies

Rushing over the landscape

To make the rivers flow

Seeping through the soil

Deep wells to expose

It’s worn away the mountains

Produced valleys and the dales

Water precious water

It’s patient and always prevails
