Subject(s): Yosemite Valley And National Park

Dauntless Captain of his corps,
Bravely standing in the fore;
On the left the mighty fall,
Over on the other wall
Floats that misty veil of tulle,
White, mysterious, and cool.
Beautiful Yosemite,
Fair as Paradise to be.

Lying there with walls of grey,
Beautiful by night and day;
Murmuring the Merced goes,
Whispering the breeze now blows;
Mirrored grandeur, lovely scenes
Painted azure, greys, and greens;
Beautiful Yosemite,
Fair as Paradise to be.

When the stars shine in the sky,
Fire comes falling from on high;
When the moon sheds silvery beams,
Haloed there the Captain seems;
Will you turn away from this
Vision of the realm of bliss?
Beautiful Yosemite,
Fair as Paradise to be.
