The Beautiful Lawn Sprinkler

Here is the “The Beautiful Lawn Sprinkler”

The Beautiful Lawn Sprinkler:

What gives it power makes it change its mind,
At each extreme, and lean its rising rain,
Down low, first one and then the other way;
In which exchange humility and pride
Reverse, forgive, arise, and die again,
Wherefore it holds at both ends of the day
The rainbow in its scattering grains of spray.
