Girl with a Water Jar

From the November 1955 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Cascading waters filled the gorge, And shadowy dawn still wrapped its edge, When first I saw a slender girl Kneeling on the rocky ledge. She held a graceful earthen jar And watched the plunging waters skim Its sides, then spiral through the mouth And fill it, bubbling, to the brim.
