Muir Woods

People bat these words around - 
Majesty and grace;
Yet it's hard to find them both
Embodied in one place.

I've gazed on snow-capped mountains,
Seen that Canyon, truly Grand;
And loved Sedona and the red rocks
Of that native land.

But when I saw the redwoods
Jutting straight into the sky,
No words could paint that picture
So I will not even try.

I will repeat majestic, though,
And that will have to do,
For once you see those trees
I think that you'd be humbled, too.

    That's how I feel trying to say something witty about your poems. Better to just say nice one sometimes. :) Nice one! :)
