♫♫ Genesis The Fountain Of Salmacis ♫♫

The Fountain

By: James Russell Lowell

Into the sunshine,

Full of the light,

Leaping and flashing

From morn till night!

Into the moonlight,

Whiter than snow,

Waving so flower-like

When the winds blow!

Into the starlight,

Rushing in spray,

Happy at midnight,

Happy by day!

Ever in motion,

Blithesome and cheery,

Still climbing heavenward,

Never aweary;--

Glad of all weathers,

Still seeming best,

Upward or downward,

Motion thy rest;--

Full of a nature

Nothing can tame,

Changed every moment,

Ever the same;--

Ceaseless aspiring,

Ceaseless content,

Darkness or sunshine

Thy element;--

Glorious fountain!

Let my heart be

Fresh, changeful, constant,

Upward, like thee!

That is great. I was really impressed by those panoramic mountain shots. They would make for really good tourist marketing materials.

The city actually is nothing special, just different from our usual standards. But the people who lives there are amazing.
