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.
