Kansas City Beautiful ~ Poems About the Places We Love

Drawings by Esther Boquist.

CLIFF DRIVE

Above the river dull and gray,
The rock cliffs tower;
The ancient water tore its way
Where vines embower;
A winding driveway sweeps along
In quiet peace,
Where once the torrent's roar was song
Without surcease.

When life is rushing much too fast,
I wander here
To cliffs recalling ages past
That I revere.
I wonder I should ever weep
For sun or moon,
When earthly beauties round me keep
Their priceless boon.
