Sara Teasdale - To E.

I have remembered beauty in the night,
 Against black silences I waked to see
 A shower of sunlight over Italy
And green Ravello dreaming on her height;
I have remembered music in the dark,
 The clean swift brightness of a fugue of Bach's,
 And running water singing on the rocks
When once in English woods I heard a lark.

But all remembered beauty is no more
 Than a vague prelude to the thought of you --
 You are the rarest soul I ever knew,
    Lover of beauty, knightliest and best;
My thoughts seek you as waves that seek the shore,
    And when I think of you, I am at rest.

Its a beautiful, peuefcal pond, with grass and trees around it, ducks splashing, swans gracefully gliding amidst the prettiest water lilies floating in the water. But theres a problem the teacher explains. The water lilies are growing so fast they are doubling in number every day so that in just 30 days they will smother the pond, killing all the fish and frogs and every other thing that lives in the pond.
