Niagara Falls


Nature's full
Of many wonders
Prominent one
Among them all
Niagara falls
Niagara falls
Niagara...Niagara...
Niagara falls.

Starting quietly
In a sea like lake
Flowing through
Tree lined slopes
Picking speed
In rocky rapids
And like time
It can't wait...
It can't wait
To drop some height
Rolling down
For a mighty leap
Fizzy buzz
Of jazzy flow
Rhym rhym rhym-rhym-rhym *
Zym zym zym-zym-zym *
Fast... fast...
Faster and faster
Rhythmic flow
And mist above
Colorful rainbow
Its magical glow
Niagara...Niagara...
Niagara falls.

From tunnel made
For visitors to go
One can stand
Behind the falls
And take a wet
Backside view
Niagara...Niagara...
Niagara falls.

When sun goes down
And night comes in
Gigantic lights
In colorful hues
Man's finishing
Touches of nature
Falling curtain's
A thing of beauty
Niagara...Niagara...
Niagara falls.

    There are very few wonders of the world that can even come
    close to the great Niagara Falls. The beauty of its constant
    cascade of waters flowing down to the earth with a great splash
    is really awesome. I enjoyed this write. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
