ANCHORED TO THE INFINITE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The builder who first bridged niagara's gorge
Last Line: And—we are anchored to the infinite!
Subject(s): God; Niagara Falls; Waterfalls


The builder who first bridged Niagara's gorge,
Before he swung his cable, shore to shore,
Sent out across the gulf his venturing kite
Bearing a slender cord for unseen hands
To grasp upon a further cliff and draw
A greater cord, and then a greater yet;
Till at last across the chasm swung
The cable—then the mighty bridge in air!

So we may send our little timid thought
Across the void, out to God's reaching hands
Send out our love and faith to thread the deep,
Thought after thought until the little cord
Has greatened to a chain no chance can break,
And—we are anchored to the Infinite!
