Oh WaterFire Providence where have you been

For the past 370 some odd years?

Surely someone else should have thought the idea,

It was encapsulated between their ears.

The citizens of Rhode Island owe a great debt

To one Barnaby Evans for his talent and intuition

For the shared enjoyment of thousands of visitors

And over-seeing the expansion that came to fruition

The success of WaterFire Providence

Has revitalized our Renaissance City

Creating an atmosphere that awakens the senses,

We experienced its magic first, Boston I don’t pity…

So come on down on a warm summer night

Walk around amid the friendly crowd

Have dinner on the waterfront

Experience the art of WaterFire and be Providence proud

– Dan D’Alessio
