The Grand Canyon

A canvass, deep, has been composed
Between red's blend with purple hues 
Cruel paths of glaciers, mighty swords
Deeply carved a threshold grand
Each turn of compass, leaves a brand
Forever leaves a breathless word
Green river whipped to whitened froth
Has nourished pines upon the ridge
It carved a place exempt from time
Justifies a Godly mind
Keeping watch ore' a western floor
Loom monoliths of ancient lore
Morning suns of shimmering wines  
Nightly stars and moonlight shines
Ours to cherish and explore, 
Past and future, native lore
Question not the splendid wonder
Rejoice with eyes behold and conquer
Saturate the trails down under
That if one stands within this glory, and
Understands the folklore stories
Voices freeze with questions asked 
With sunlit peaks where ancients gasped
Xanadu in fact, exclaimed
You came, you saw, a crevice famed
Zenith, is Grand, and a canyon is named
