Hoover Dam


Hoover Dam is just amazing
We were privileged to observe
Nestled in the Colorado River
A construction that has served

The building began in 1931
And it was completed in 1935
Two years ahead of schedule
It was really an amazing drive

This dam was named for a president
Herbert Hoover was his name
If it hadn’t been for this structure
Nothing will be quite the same

This dam was considered to be
And it’s not at all a mystery
One of the greatest engineering
Projects in American history!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
