Waterfall flowing freely
What eyes can truly understand you
Swinging majestically untouched and unarmed
What a beautiful site this is to see

Does he bring water to the animals?
Does he give freedom to the fish?
Or does he keep the animals from moving on
And thus does he imprison the fish

Does he greet the rain with welcome?
Or does he push it off with glee
Does he fight the current or fight it
Does he like the mist or wish it was gone

Does he look at the stars at night or down at the mud
Does he shiver in the winter and sweat in the summer
What eyes could truly understand you
None. No eyes can see its full beauty

This poem is an apostrophe poem, a direct address to a waterfall personified.
