Paradise on Earth

A collection of poems by David Morin

The Waterfall

The waterfall came from a stream that wound through the dense forest

Beside the waterfall there were ferns and mosses

Underneath the waterfall was a dipper's nest

The dipper flew to and fro at regular intervals bobbing up and down on the stones downstream from the waterfall

Not far down from the waterfall a mallard duck was sitting on a clutch of eggs in her featherdown lined nest

It was raining softly as another day passed by in life of the waterfall
