* Canyon of Beauty

Edward Bierly

Over the precipices high it pours,
Down at the bottom away it roars.
As we all know it is one mile deep,
And the walls on the sides are oh so steep !

Down at the bottom, like a silver thread,
One mile below it has made its bed.
What has made this wonderfule sight ? you may ask;
The Colorado River has done the task.
