Above the Grand Canyon

I watched Wallenda walk the wire;
My heart was in my mouth.
I hoped that he’d stay east or west
And wouldn’t end up south.

I’m sure his nerves of steel were frayed
And though he risked his life,
I worried just as much for him
As I did for his wife.

For watching from the ground, I think
That we would all agree,
Those minutes must have felt, to her,
Like an eternity!

    So well done ilene. And thank goodness he is too. I swore that I would not partake in this possible tale of woo. But when I happen'd cross the show, I couldn't look away. But thank goodness for distracting clicks. When I returned, he had already made his way.
