Considering the layout of the poem, it can be said that it is rather unusual. It recalls the water falling and suggests to the intelligent reader the possible meaning of the text. The structure is organized into six lines and they are all identical amongst them: the poem is based on the repetition of the subject and verb "Water Falls". From the phonological point of view, there is a constant repetition of the same sounds. Concerning the rhetorical level, the presence of an anaphora can be identified. In my opinion this repetition and the layout chosen have the aim to emphasise the message which the poet wants to send.
