Mighty water!  headlong tumbling
Down the vast abyss below,
Ceaseless pouring, endless roaring
Music like this — semper amo.


C.W. Wilson was from Buffalo

W. M.:

We are here today and gone tomorrow.

E. B.:

Well, why don’t you stop a week at the hotel?  The beds and grub are good.

C. C.:

Yes, but devilish dear.

W.H.A.:

If it were not such a squally day
‡‡I guess that I would write
Some simple lines, and say my say
‡‡On this stupendous sight.

Q in a Corner:

O, what a pity that there should
‡‡Be such a naughty squall,
That pretty missy cannot write
‡‡Her poem on the “fall.”

Roll on, Niagara, as thou hast ever rolled,
Since thy great Maker called thee into being;
But wilt thou never stop?    O yes, thou wilt,
When the great Archangel sounds the final trump —
One foot upon the sea, and one on shore —
And swears that time shall be no more forever;
The thundering sound that swells upon our ears,
Will then be silenced, and the mighty flood,
That pours itself o’er the tremendous precipice,
Will cease to be. — There is but ONE ALONE —
The first, last, ever-living Trinity,
That can control thee whensoe’er he will.

 


H.B. Tuttle was from Lansingburgh, N.Y.

I looked upon the water, and I smiled
To see how furiously the creeter biled;
And then I thought I wiped a tear away,
But folks that saw it said it looked like spray.
