The Grand Canyon Colors

Updated on November 26, 2012

A Grand Vacation To A Grand Canyon....

 

Going on a long trip...to a place far away...

Out where the Grand Canyon sits in the Sun all day.

Sand and Sun come together...way out there in the West...

For Eons there...Canyon Rock and the Colorado River have been put to the test.

Color was added all Around...and On the Sides...

To Change with the Sun...as it Rises...Then Hides.

Many Men Of Whom...Were Of No Name...

Have Stood On These Cliffs...All Saw the Same.

And I have traveled...Many Times Across the Southwest...since I was kid...

To See this Grand Canyon... Put on a show...like nothing else ever did !

YOU CANYON...That makes me feel so small...

What tales do you hide...Well...Within your Canyon Wall ?

Was it Indians or Conquistadors...Who first stumbled across you..."Oh, You Know !"

"Grand Ol' Canyon...Who was the First to Stumble Across You...So Long Ago?"

The Eagle Nearby Could Tell Us...But He is too busy above in the Sky...

What Peace He Must Feel To Be There... I'll Let Him Be Free To Fly !

I See Shadows Move Against Earthly Ribbon Hues of Red, Yellow, Orange, and Brown...

The Shade of the Purple-Blue Sky Above...Trickles Against the Color of Sand on the Ground.

Like No Place I Have Seen On This Planet Before...

The Grand Canyon...Will Be Here...Till Mankind is No More.

I Watch As An Indian Dances...Up High Upon A Canyon Ridge...

As All Time Becomes This Time...And All Time Forms A Bridge.

And As I Sit...Admiring the Setting Sun...

I See Where Time Bridged Together...Where Time First Begun.

Out Past the Highways where the Rest of the World Speeds By...

The Canyon Sits Quietly...Beckoning You To See The World Through Earth's Own Eye.

And As I Look Way Down Into the Grand Canyon...There Below My Feet...

I See Where Time Allowed the Canyon Rock and the Colorado River Below Me To Meet.

Grand Canyon of Beauty...I'm Enjoying Being Here...On Such A Grand Vacation...

I'll Be Back...on my next Southwest trip to you...For more Grand Canyon Exploration !

So Wonderful to be at Peace here...and See such a Wonderful View...

Look At You, Grand Canyon...With Each Twist Of The Sun...You Reveal Something New !
