If the ice is floating in a glass, the water level will stay the same after the ice melts. The water level would only go down if the ice had been forcibly held submerged deeper than it would otherwise float if it were free to do so.

In the valley of the Green Glass Door.
There is a pool but no water,
apples but no grapes,
school but no learning,
trees but no branches,
teeth but no mouths,
Halloween but no candy,
and mirrors but no reflections.

Why is this?
