Intense spotlights bathe the falls with different shades of color every night.

I’ve seen you a hundred times

I’ll never get tired of your natural beauty

I’ll come any season to breathe in

Your misty air cool and fresh.


Your cascade down the steep rock

No matter the size and height

Is the most beautiful wave

When it comes crashing down.


Falling and roaring

Placid and bustling

Gorging downstream

Receding upstream.


My heart lured by your splendor

Enchanting and proud

Spectacular from above

Majestic from the ground.


You continue to flow as precious as life

You fill up my spirit beneath the bright sky

And as your shadow dash down my face

Your ageless beauty touches my soul.


Your beauty so mesmerizing

Graced with pretty rainbow rays

How lovely, how joyful

To watch you, Niagara Falls!

The frozen Niagara Falls at 35 thousand feet is stunning!

      mary615: Thank you for gracing this page and for voting up. The Falls is indeed majestic all year round and yes, I saw it frozen and it's amazing. Curious to see the movie (Marilyn Monroe); will check it out.

      I'm so glad I saw this Hub about Niagara Falls. I just saw on the news last night about the Falls being frozen. Hard to believe! Your photos are beautiful. Ever see the movie "Niagara" with Marilyn Monroe?

      I visited the Falls once, and would love to go back (when the weather is warmer!)

      Voted up, etc.

      Love this, CrisSp. I grew up not far from the Falls so I've been there countless times as a child and adult. Still go back when I visit my hometown, Buffalo. Your poetry gave me a new appreciation of the Falls. Amazing words and descriptions of how it makes you feel. I love taking pictures of them and have even used them in a poetry hub as well. Thanks for this one, well done, voted up, awesome, and beautiful.
