Fantastic Frozen Falls
(A Chilly Canzone)
Once temperatures drop to when water will freeze,
While ice forms upon our lakes,
It’s great when it reaches the proper degrees
To find out what nature makes.
There’s a special spark when the air gets a chill.
Hiding in a special place,
An amazing sight that will give you a thrill,
Enough to make your heart race.
In Minneapolis, at the edge of town,
There is Minnehaha Falls.
Sparkling crystals dance as cold water drops down
Creating tall frozen walls.
The Ice on the left forms a ghostly choir,
An ice organ on the right.
The sound echoes deep within a glass spire,
Resounding around the site.
It’s a marvelous sight, as sun starts to drop.
Center falls in cold cascade.
Music plays, as water goes over the top
In wintery serenade
Yes! Sights and sounds are so rare,
When Ice Crystals dance in air!
Minnehaha Falls is as intriguing in winter, as it is any time of year. This is my first attempt of a Canzone Style poem, which was inspired by the poem Deep Purple Moon by Gungalo.
