After hearing the learn’d poets

read their poems about the Passaic River

and the Paterson Great Falls, both nearby,

I wandered off by myself to the falls.

The mystical moist air was real, not poetic.

Visitors in perfect silence breathing the rainbow.

 

falls and rainbow

Inspired by the poems from The Great Falls poetry anthology,
Walt Whitman’s  “When I heard the Learn’d Astronomer
and the Paterson Great Falls in New Jersey.
