The Canyon Sonnet




The Canyon Sonnet

Lovely and lithe the colors play smartly
In wonderful palette of sun born hues
I watch from the top this beauty partly
Because to miss this is naught but to lose
The canyon has ever been thus to we
Who in its shadow were given to dwell
Such stuff is that which allows us to see
Ever its story to finally tell
The light of the sun full well on the face
Of rocks that dazzle in shimmering peace
There is not speed to their natural race
Just wonderful heartfelt healing release
The canyon is power and true to form
Is the great upside to understood norm
