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
