‘Cataract on a Canvas’ by Bruce Dale Wise The Society August 25, 2013 Art, Beauty, Poetry In Niagara by Frederick Edwin Church, immediately one’s taken in to the great falls. From a remarkably precarious perch, one’s seized by the enormity of the landscape. One sees at once the powerful and driving force of the water rushing forth to accelerate downward and over the inevitable course one anticipates. The green and white waters splash beneath a blue sky with pink clouds. The water pours. One knows it roars. One can see it all in a flash as it hurtles headlong, the vastness of its urge and its necessary and crescendoing verge.
