Words for the poem drought
by: Anonymous

I am the parched earth of this Island that cries for water
From the hurly burly of Kingston, to the quiet peace of Negril
This is my cry, water!

The rains do not fall, and the giant tree roots rumble through my belly
Digging and tearing in their quest, for they are thirsty.

The cattle hungry, munch on dead dry grass
They cannot now grow green
Wondering, in their mute patience if this is some new experiment
Must their kind die again to prove its fault

The flowers to beautify my country cannot grow.
Their seeds fall dutifully upon my skin
Only to wither away into nothingness
For there is no moisture to sustain them

And in the churches the people pray
They lift their eyes to heaven and call aloud
Rain! Oh God! Give us rain!
Give us rain that we may plant our fields to feed our families and our fellowmen.

Rain! In this land of wood and water
That our animals may eat of lush green grass again
That our rivers may once more swell with pride

And the agony of my drought bound bound body echoes the call. Give us rain!

This is how I remember it
by: Barbara T

In a cleft remote where white mist float
Around blue mountain's peak
I rise unseen beneath a stream
Of fog clouds dank and bleak

I trickle, I flow to the hills below
And vales that lie far under
From babbleings low I louder grow
I shout, I roar, I thunder

I fall with a rush in the morning hush
While the mountain sleeping lies
There's slow I creep, there's swift I sleep
Till the sound of my motion dies

Oh I rejoice in the night wind's voice
As soft it kisses my stream
I dance and shimmer, and glance and glimmer
Where moonlit reaches gleam

With ice cold waves I gently laves
They echoes as I wander
I gleam and glide neath mountain pride
I murmur and meander

Through fern arched dells where fairy bells
And voilet scents the air
While call above the soft blue dove
Our lone voice solitaire

And here I crash with silver flash
Over a mighty crag
And the echoes ring as I headlong fling
The trees are downward dragged

Till last I pour with deafening roar
A mountain stream no longer
O'er vales below and seaward flow
A river broad and stronger.

Song of a Blue Mountain stream
by: Ralph Smith

Memories of more than fifty years ago when elocution was an important part the our primary school experiences in Jamaica.

Along other great Jamaican poems that I had to memorize and recite, this poem by R.M. Murray 'song of a Blue Mountain stream' has been etched in my brain and I am truly excited to see so many expressing memory of it.

I had been whooped to get it right but I did get it and now looking back fifty-five years later. WOW!!!

i did the poem in primary school competion and i came first out of 3 and even though its 45 years ago still rember like yesterday
by: Hyacinth Deperalto

In a cleft remote where white mist float around the blue mountain's peak, i rise unseen beneath the screen of fog clouds dark and bleak. I trickle i flow to the hills below and the hills that lies far under. From babblings low i louder grow i shout i roar i thunder. I fall with a rush in the morning hush while the mountain sleeping lies. There swift i sweep,here slow i creep till the sound of my motion dies o i rejoic in the night winds voice as soft it kisses my stream and dance and glimmer and prance and shimmer til moonlit reaches gleam
With ice cold waves i gently lave the flowers as i wander i gloom and glide neath mountain pride. I murmur and meander through fern arched dells where flowers and violet scent the air while calls above the soft blue dove or lone voiced solitaire.
And here i crash with silver flash over a mighty crag and the echoes ring as i headlong fling the trees i downward drag and last i pour with deafening roar a mountain stream no longer Oer plains below and seaward flow a river broad and stronger

Poem called Drought
by: Anonymous

Yes I do know that poem unfortunately I don't recall most of the words or who is the author.I would be happy if someone would help in reminding us of those words.



Editor's Note

Is this the one my friend?

DROUGHT IN MANCHESTER
By Ethel Rovere
Another day of sunshine,
Another day of heat.

The grass once lush and verdant
Lies parched beneath our feet.
For months no rain has fallen,
Each scorching day goes by.

A runner tells us that the spring
At Nottingham is dry.
The public tank at Mandeville
Gave out three weeks ago,
And now if Berry Hill should fail
Where can the people go?

The red hibiscus blossoms
Are small and pale and wan.
The dainty blue plumbago
Droops—withered by the sun.
Our stock are dying daily
For lack of grass and grain,
Our crops are parched and withered.

Almighty God, send rain.

Hope someone will remember the words in its entirety.

I Do Not Recall Verses 2 and 3
by: Dorman

Oh! Great poem. Lucea Primary. Late 1960s. Just cannot seem to recall which teacher. Mrs. Samuels at Grade 6, or Brenda Longmore-Ruddock, you name it. So many great poems. In fact, I always loved poetry - Tarantella, Godfrey Gordon Gustavus Gore, Lochinvar, The Sands of Dee. Oh! Don't let me start. The singing of 'A Tiny Brown Lizard', or 'Cock Robin'. I think we were told RN Murray was related to the late Lascelles Murray, Candidate for MHR in Hanover (cannot confirm). Today's kids don't know a Bible verse. They know no poetry. How my heart bleeds for them.

The Song of the Blue Mountain Stream
By
Reginald M. Murray

In a cleft remote where white mists float
Around Blue Mountain's peak
I rise unseen beneath a screen
of fog clouds dank and bleak.

I trickle, I flow to the hills below
and vales that lie far under.
From babblings low I louder grow
I shout, I roar, I thunder

I fall with a rush in the morning hush
While the mountain sleeping lies
There’s slow I creep, there’s swift I sleep
Till the sound of my motion dies

O’ I rejoice in the night wind’s voice
As soft it kisses my stream
And dance and shimmer, and glance and glimmer
Where moonlit reaches gleam

With ice cold waves, I gently lay
The echoes as I wonder
I gleam and glide ‘neath mountain pride
I murmur and meander

Through fern arched dells where
Fairy bells and violets scent the air
while called above, the soft blue dove
our lone voice solitaire

And here I crash with silver flash
Over a mighty crag
And the echoes ring as I head long fling
The trees are downward dragged

Till last I pour with deafening roar
A mountain stream no longer
O’er vales below and seaward flow
A river broad and stronger

Beautiful Memories
by: clarence

I attended the Irwin Hill Primary School in St. James , Jamaica where my mother mrs. Forbes taught the lower division. The principal Miss Brown was a very cultural person and exposed us to a lot of poetry including this beautiful poem.

This poem has stayed on my mind and heart for over 50 years and it was a joy to find it again. I get the same beautiful feeling I got the first time I heard it having been quite a romantic from a very early age.What a difference from the type of lyrics children are being exposed to today. Many thanks to your site, keep up the good work.

A River, broad and stronger!

The Song Of A Mountain Stream
By Reginald M. Murray

In a cleft remote
Where white mists float
Around Blue Mountain's Peak,
I rise unseen
Beneath a screen
Of fog-clouds dank and bleak
I trickle, I flow
To the hills below
And vales that lie far under,
From babblings low
I louder grow,
I shout, I roar, I thunder.

I fall with a rush
In the morning hush
While the mountain seeping lies,
There swift I sweep,
Here slow I creep,
Till the sound of my motion dies;
Oh! I rejoice
In the night wind's voice
As soft it kisses my stream,
And dance and glimmer
And glance and shimmer
Where moon-lit reaches gleam.

With ice-cold wave
I gently lave
The flowers as I wander,
I gloom and glide
'Neath Mountain Pride,
I murmur and meander
Thru arched fern dells
Where fairy-bells
And violets scent the air
While calls above
The soft blue dove
It's lone voice solitaire.
And here I crash
With a silver flash
Over a mighty crag,
The echoes ring
As I headlong fling
The trees I downward drag;
Till last I pour
With deafening roar,
A mountain stream no longer,
O'er plains below
And seawards flow
A river broad and stronger .

Rudolph,I think there might still be a line that is not correct.

Again, I it has been a long time ago for me, but as I read the complete poem now, it seems to me that the second to last line should be .."towards seaward flow..."

I am just saying!

PS: We might be related. I was told one side of my family is from Mavis Bank, a big family, the Drysdales.

Speak!!

The words that I put up on this site Feb. 2010 were those found in the book from the Cornel Library. I think there are errors in it.

It is not the way I remember the poem but then I was very young when I heard the poem. In fact I did not learn it in school. I heard my older sisters recite it and I agree that it should read...a MOUNTAIN stream no longer. Thank you Clair for the correction.

As you can see there are typo errors as well. I will correct these soon.
We should keep this action going. There may be someone who knows of another published version of this extremely beautiful and inciteful work. Does anyone know anything about the Author?

Paving The way To The Blue Mountain Stream
by: Joan S.

Well hello there to everyone who showed interest and remained interested in this poem.

This means so much to me that I feel like hugging everyone, especially the person who finally found this poem.

Dear friends, My interest goes way back to my childhood days when I lived in the Parish of Portland, Cascade District.

Our family home was situated on a hill nestled in a bit of plain land.but the rest of the property was hilly all around as far as the eyes could see.

The house was faced towards the Blue Mountains and we had the full view of the highest peak amongst them. I am just picturing the sights!!!

Well, I was taught that poem and we had to recite this whenever asked to do so, by teachers and parents.

Now, I had a very active imagination, and used to visualize the "stream" flowing in the manner as depicted in the poem.realizing, that that somewhere, that stream becomes a river, then from the river eventually flow to the sea. BEAUTIFUL!!I could go on and on.

However, thanks a million. (smile) Joan

Here is the Poem:

The Song Of A Mountain Stream

In a cleft remote
Where white mists float
Around Blue Mountain?s Peak,
I rise unseen
Beneath a screen
Of fog-clouds dark and bleak
I trickle, I flow
To the hills below
And vales that lie far under,
From babblings low
I louder grow,
I shout, I roar, I thunder.

I fall with a rush
In the morning hush
While the mountain seeping lies,
There swift I sweep,
Here slow I creep,
Till the sound of my motion dies;
Oh! I rejoice
In the night wind?s voice
As soft it kisses my stream,
And dance and glimmer
And glance and shimmer
Where moon-lit reaches gleam.

With ice-cold wave
I gently lave
The flowers as I wander,
I gloom and glide
?Neath Mountain Pride,
I murmur and meander
Thru? fern-arched dells
Where fairy-bells
And violets scent the air
While calls above
The doleful dove
And lone voiced solitaire.

And here I crash
With silver flash
Over a mighty crag,
And the echoes ring
As I headlong fling
The trees I downward drag;
Till last I pour
With deafening roar,
A highwood stream no longer,
O?er plains below
And seawards flow
A river broad and stronger .

THE SONG OF THE BLUE MOUNTAIN STREAM
by: Pam Dennett

I seem to remember this from The Song of the Blue Mountain Stream:

I trickle and flow to the bills below and vales that lie far under Through babbling brook and something something,
I murmer and meander, etc. etc.

I do hope someone would give us the whole poem. I think it was either in the Royal Reader or the West Indian Reader that I read these poems along with others such "Mary go and call the cattle home", There was a ship of Rio sailed out into the blue" and many others. This is going back 52 years ago. What wonderful books they were. Does anyone still have the books? Pam

Song of a Blue Mountain Stream
by: Joel D'Hue

I do not know the whole poem but I do remember some of it. Here goes:

In a cleft remote where white mists float
Around Blue Mountain's peak
I rise unseen beneath a screen
Of fog clouds dank and bleak.

I trickle I flow to the hills below
And vales that lie far under.
From bablings low I louder grow
I shout I roar I thunder

Through fern arched dells where
Fairy bells and violets scent the air
While calls above the soft blue dove
And lone voiced solitaire.

(This is where I get lost but I do remember one more verse)

Then last I pour with deafening roar
Over a mighty crag.
And the echoes ring as I headlong fling
The trees I downward drag.


I have been trying to find the words myself so if you get lucky and find someone who knows the whole poem I'd like a copy of it. Thanks
