The Great Cathedral

Horsetail Falls

Horsetail Falls, Cascade Locks, OR

In a cave under a waterfall I recall the poem that begins:

In the immense cathedral of the holy earth,
Whose arches are the heavens and the great vault above
Groined with its myriad stars — what miracles of birth,
What sacraments of death, what rituals of love!
” -John Hall Wheelock
