Background Heading Our World Main Poetry Index PLEASE SEE THIS FILM Listening Page Water


It’s there when I turn on the tap

   And when I flush the loo.

I need it when I take a shower

   Or give a drink to you.


I use it when I clean my teeth

   Or when I wash my hair.

The clouds above send it to us.

   It travels through the air.


You’ll find it at the swimming pool

    And also in the sea.

All living things depend on it

   And not just you or me.


We use it when we make the tea

   And for iced-lollies too,

And use it when we wash our clothes -

   Yes, lots of it, it’s true.


I sometimes grumble at the rain

     And you do I expect,

But water’s such a precious gift

    Which we really should respect.
