In the mountains up high,
The rain falls from the sky,
Its water crashing down onto the ground.
In this stormy weather,
The rain comes together,
Between the rocks, new puddles are found.
These puddles spread and grow,
Their waters begin to flow,
Creating small streams that tumble and fall.
Flowing down the mountainside,
Over the rocks these streams ride,
Until a river is formed from them all.
Into the valley below,
The leaping river does flow,
As down from the mountain it descends.
Sparkling in the sunlight,
The waters clear and bright.
When it reaches the lake, its journey ends.
