Niagara Falls - Poem by Ella Rose

I've seen pictures but never the authentic beauty,
for one can never explain such flowing cascades,
Niagara Falls has stolen my sadness while broody,
what a marvel mother nature has made.




Wonder one of the seven seen within earth's creations

Above Lake Erie bordering Canada while cascading

Torrents of Niagara Falls impermeable from hydration

Exquisite attraction in America, I watch the cataracts fading

Rain and snow activate the collecting of precipitation

Falls of water chute down strong, my essence serenading

All the spectacles have exceeded my curious expectations

Lingering tourists are enthralled, streams can be persuading

Latitude of distance the water enforces without explanation



Watching the strong current energize while it invigorates,
I wonder what the crystallization would look like if the falls could solidify.
I can't imagine seeing a single glimpse as the frosty snow saturates.
In wintry weather the streams don't freeze; requisite while the falls mystify.

    I tried an acrostic limerick It's tougher when you go inside each line and this site crowds to the left when printing.
    I shall try to remember where it is. Maybe somebody else will remember (not my forte)
    Come to think of it there are more than one. (Report) Reply
