The north! the north! from out the north
What founts of light are breaking forth,
And streaming up these evening skies,
A glorious wonder to our eyes!
It mounts, it spreads, it parts, and plays
In thousand forms, a thousand ways.
The moon, to hide her silver crown,
Behind the hills is sinking down;
The silent stars more fixed appear,
To watch the blazing o'er their sphere.
The north! the north! ah! who can tell
What fires in thy cold bosom dwell,
Or e'er the grand arcana know,
Such scenery o'er the heavens to throw? (Poem: Hannah Flag Gould) (📷: Hayden1616) || #sunshinevillage #explorealberta #northernlights #auroraborealis #homeiscanada #canadianrockies #mybanff #sunshinemountainlodge
