Raging waters, airborne off rocks,
to calm, it enters the locks.
Only to begin it's rage again,
down it flows, around the bend.
Fast currency, it passes on through,
the canal, made especially for two.
It leads to the end, the faster it is,
down it falls, feel the mist.
What a sight, as harsh as it is,
the colorful lights, beams off where it sits.
Summernight getaway, a tourists dream,
a natures attraction, is only what it seems.

Thius poem is based off Niagara Falls, in niagara falls, ny. For those whjo have been there, picture the water, close your eyes, feel the mist that comes off the water. and of course, the colorful lights they shine onto it at night. What a sight, absolutely beautiful

You gave the water such life.

the imagery is good but baffles me, I've never known a canal quite like that, they are usually all calm for barges and the locks for height or bends, never usually a waterfall, or fast currents, very rarely are they fast,.
