And abundance of fruit, which I think may suit
The palates of all, both great and small.

How grand to see the waters whirled
Down the river, then rapidly hurled
Over the brink,
I shudder to think
Of one's falling in
Amid the din.
How they pour!
What a fearful roar!

Is surely Niagara's marvellous Fall.

Below, observe a lady stands,
And a man kneels to receive her commands.
