The Beauty that is America - a poem

Kern Valley River, California
Painted by Albert Bierstadt

Languid days by the riverside

Calm and peaceful flows the river

The beauty of the far off mountains seen

As the sun begins breaking through the clouds

Lighting up the river to crystal clear waters

Reflecting the purple Majesties

Here I sit, mesmerized by the beauty of it all

Glorious nature envelops me all around

The majesty of this valley raises my eyes and soul

Towards heaven - but - No, heaven is right here on earth

As I watch the river silently pass by

My heart and soul are at peace.
