The Secret Waterfall

The secret waterfall was well hidden
to reach it one had to pass behind
the curtain of the fall that all knew about

Then through a short passage
that led to a beautiful lagoon
hidden by the rocky towering cliffs

Here the secret fall sang its song
as it gayly flowed bouncing along
just a pleasant gentle murmur

As it joined the crystal clear waters
a profusion of plants and flowers adorn
the gentle sloping banks

A natural sun trap this little valley
colourful birds singing out their joy
as they splash in your small pools

Here at your feet is a sense of peace
looking up to your source at the top
I stand in stunned awe at your beauty

    Very well captured Shadow, in fact as I was reading this I had a picture in my mind of a waterfall which I have been to, in Kings Park here in Perth, and it seemed as though you had been there yourself with this description it sounded exact, absolutely beautiful. Vera. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
