Niagara! wonder of this western world, And half the world beside! hail, beauteous queen Of cataracts! An angel who had been Oer heaven and earth, spoke thus, his bright wings furled, And knelt to Nature first, on this wild cliff unseen. Maria BrooksTo Niagara.
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 Eternallybidding the lip of man Keep silenceand upon thine altar pour Incense of awe-struck praise. Lydia H. SigourneyNiagara.
