Hail, gorgeous gulch ! Beseems me that thou art,
A mighty gorging gorge—and it is well
Thy muchness moves me, so I rage and smart,
With thoughts too big for my poor pen to te ll;
I see thy rushing torrents onward flow,
Until they reach the brink—then down they go!
For my weak pencil, what a hugeous theme!
Thou worriest me, e’en to my inmost core;
Thou turbulent, tumbling, terrific stream—
What reader will not dub my pen a bore ?
Has his wild eye but once beheld thee leap,
So boldly from the cliff top—to the deep!
I fain would write me in a merry vein;
So many pens with thee grow eloquent;
And yet when I behold thee once again,
And note the bigness of thy “onward went;”
Methinks there is a grandeur in thy tone,
That “knocks out” every rhymer in the zone.
'Tis not for man to meddle with thy waves;
Pigmies should not affect too large a hat—
There is a mightiness in all thy caves;
Which tells the reader what I’m driving at—
Thou hast so much of greatness all thine own,
That scribblers vain, had best leave thee alone.
And yet my soul do'st dearly love to drink,
Its fullness from the fullness of thy might;
The world has o n e Niagara, and I think
The world is humbled, when thou are in sight;
Yet man will speculate to make thee feel,
The bit and check-rein of the water wheel!
Go hence invention—let the torrent leap
Into abysses formed so long ago;
He who would dam thee—let damnation keep,
From every curb upon thy overflow;
Until thy gorge, a neatly chiseled spout,
Shall let the bottom of Lake Erie out.
In that sore day, where will poor Cleveland be?
Remote from old highways;—no shipping nigh,
To mark a pathway o’er the vanished sea,
With Buffalo, to-wit: hung up to dry.
With fate of these poor towns, my soul is sad,
Yet others have their days of glory had.
The bow of promise hangs above thy Fall,
Oh dread Niagara—and my puny voice,
Beseeches Him who watches over all,
To grant them still, a few days to rejoice.
Let them take warning, and be building piers,
For use sometime—within a billion years.

And so I leave thee, spouting as of eld,
And tearing at the rocks with giant claws;
The same as when creation's morn beheld,
The first fierce practice of thy infant jaws;
Thy pow’r shall eat the crumbling cliff always,
And we shall have thy gorge for many days.
Oh mighty gulch! I feel thy bigness yet,
And note the grandeur of thy yeasty way,
As at the eventide when sun has set,
We note the beauty of the closing day;
From one who wears thy greatness near his heart,
Take thou a stranger’s blessing ere we part.
