Once – fire. Now,
Ring of ice and snow –
Crater Lake.

The light reigns
Where river rushes –
Gorgeous gorge.

Behold the rocky wall
That down its sloping sides
Pours the swift rain-drops, blending, as they fall,
In rushing river-tides! 

Yon stream, whose sources run
Turned by a pebble’s edge,
Is Athabasca, rolling toward the sun
Through the cleft mountain-ledge. 

The slender rill had strayed,
But for the slanting stone,
To evening’s ocean, with the tangled braid
Of foam-flecked Oregon, 

So from the heights of Will
Life’s parting stream descends,
And, as a moment turns its slender rill,
Each widening torrent bends, – 

From the same cradle’s side,
From the same mother’s knee, –
One to long darkness and the frozen tide,
One to the Peaceful Sea!
