The  Tyler  Davidson  Fountain
Cincinnati    Ohio

Full of a nature

    Nothing can tame,
Changing every moment,
    Ever the same;
Ceaseless aspiring
    Ceaseless content;
Darkness or sunshine
    Thy element;
Glorious fountain,
    Let our heart be
Fresh, changeful, constant,
    Upward like thee!
At the dedication of the fountain
October 6, 1871

The fountain represents the importance of water
in the everyday lives of the citizens of
Cincinnati in the late 1800's.
