The Hyams Fountains

The Hyams Wading Fountains
For all New Orleans to enjoy...
Lovely gifts to all our children...
So much more than just a toy...

To us from Sara Lavinia Hyams...
A lovely lady of great wealth....
She sold her jewels and her riches...
To spread happiness and good health...

One fountain for each park...
Was her gift from Up Above...
These fountains were graciously given...
To our children with so much love...

Fountains of friendship...
For our children, old and young...
Gifts to all New Orleans...
For us to enjoy the Summer fun...

So splash away little children...
Throw caution to the wind...
As it was her wish for us all...
To enjoy her fountains ‘til the end...
