NIAGARA
[ Also see Rivers Water ]

"Niagara! wonder of this western world,
  And half the world beside! hail, beauteous queen
    Of cataracts!" An angel who had been
      O'er heaven and earth, spoke thus, his bright wings furled,
        And knelt to Nature first, on the wild cliff unseen.
      - Maria Brooks, To Niagara

Fools-to-free-the-world, they go,
  Primeval hearts from Buffalo.
    Red cataracts of France to-day
      Awake, three thousand miles away,
        An echo of Niagara
          The cataract of Niagara.
      - Nicholas Vachel Lindsay, Niagara

Flow on for ever in thy glorious robe
  Of terror and of beauty; * * * God hath set
    His rainbow on thy forehead; and the cloud
      Mantles around thy feet. And He doth give
        Thy voice of thunder power to speak of Him
          Eternally, bidding the lip of man
            Keep silence, and upon thy rocky altar pour
              Incense of awe-struck praise.
      - Lydia Huntley Sigourney

Flow on, forever, in thy glorious robe
  Of terror and of beauty. Yea, flow on
    Unfathomed and resistless. God hath set
      His rainbow on thy forehead: and the cloud
        Mantled around thy feet. And He doth give
          Thy voice of thunder power to speak of Him
            Eternally--bidding the lip of man
              Keep silence--and upon thine altar pour
                Incense of awe-struck praise.
      - Lydia Huntley Sigourney, Niagara
