C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
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.
Mrs. Sigourney.    
  1
        “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 this wild cliff unseen.
Maria Brooks.
