The Falls - Poem by Carmela Patterson

The sound of the Falls
Thunders with applause
Glorifying God as it races,
Much as do His Graces
Bestowed upon mortal man
Simply because He can,
To the edge of the precipice
Mixed with foam below
White as the snow ~
~ The Falls,
O the beauty of that show!

In the waters of the green sea
Plunging, gushing, twisting, misting.
The Falls glorifies God's majesty ~
O the beauty of His Tapestry!
What fools are we
If we do not see ~
~ The Falls,
His captivating Beauty!

The Gorge flows with swelling waters
Ever dashing, thrashing, and crashing
Upon rocks and docks;
It swirls, whirls and twirls
Panting in a prancing dance
As at God's Wonders I glance
Then in a trance
I stare
at the Beauty there.

Praise God for eyes to see!
Praise God for ears to hear!
