The Fountain

A jet of water, upwards in a gush
above the pool was rising with a rush,
as if to reach the heavens was its aim;
it kissed the sky, and bent, and downwards came.

A mighty labor for a second´s bliss,
yet still it never ceased to reach and miss.
So does my soul for Asgard´s splendor yearn,
but must from shining heights to Earth return.
