CMW (May 3,1946 / Manhattan, Kansas)

Canyon Reverie (Constanza)

I stop to watch the eagle soar.
At dawn his silhouette flies high
through brilliant colored crimson sky.

Below the gorge at valley’s floor,
the creatures rise up one by one;
a quest for food has just begun.

I listen to the fierce winds roar.
Descending from the north they blow
and carry in the first light snow.

They make the river crest the shore.
A swirl of colored leaves abound
dancing before they touch the ground,

As autumn breezes in once more.
I marvel at the leaves in flight
and wonder where they will alight.

I stop to watch the eagle soar.
Below the gorge at valley’s floor,
I listen to the fierce winds roar.
They make the river crest the shore.
As autumn breezes in once more.
