American Falls, Niagara, from Across River
The sylvan perfume, the gayety of the sunshine, the mildness of the breeze that stirred the leaves overhead, and the bird singing that made itself felt amid the roar of the rapids and the solemn incessant plunge of the cataract, moved our hearts and made us children with the boy and girl that stood beside us--who stood for a moment and then broke into joyful wonder. --W.
