Analysis of Niagara
Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)
Nigel stood with God
Being ultimately of God
By the falls of niagra
And felt every movement
Of the waters
thrashing wave into sound
Nighttime fell with the sun
And the smell of the earth
Like honey dew
Hit the ground where they sat
And the flowers spoke too
Then the still birds flew again
And faiths jealousy was discussed in pain
And needs of the heart became a must
