Niagara:‘Terribly Beautiful’ Splash
by Dr. Ratan Bhattacharjee
Bookmark and Share
 

Hear the roaring in the air
When you find Waterfalls coming near
Sound is golden here
Silence does shimmer

This is what in Niagara you feel
Real life in a reel
Down the cliff it plunges whooshing
Down the rocks pushing gushing
Wreaking, pecking, decking out of rocks
Thrushing, brushing and crushing
Creating all the shocks
Water in white sheets flows round
Listen with rapt attention
Listen to the sound
It is like a hungry lion roaring
Lushing, shushing and mushing
Like a hungry hound.

Fast and faster in rainbow variety
From the hills pouring
Niagara is roaring day and night
Niagara is roaring.
Are the hard rocks melting all white?
Are the hard rocks weeping the night?
On the  way to Niagara all  boarded the bus
To see what meaning, water carries for us
What description can they give to Niagara 
Yes,  a ‘Terribly Beautiful’  splash,
Bringing awful memories of life
In just one flash!

Waterfall cascades down
Villages, cities and the town
Cleansed, washed and drenched
Whinstones collapse and
We are all entranced.
Dudhsagar, Kempty, Chitrakoot, Abbey
Victoria, Unchalli, Pallaruvi, Hebbe
Angel Falls, Ramnefjells Falls
Kukenam, Long and Alfred Creek
And Kjerag and Monge Waterfalls.
Everywhere on the green mountains
Terrifying, plunging water sheets roll
From the mountain peak
Beauteous, free and ecstatic
Waterfalls can touch your soul.
