Yosemite



 “Beauty, whose face and mystery we seek,


Forever longing and forever foiled,


Whose praise the voices of our art would speak,


And in whose faith all art and love have toiled."  [...] 


"O domes and towers and stupendous walls!


O voices of auroral waterfalls!


Sierran thunderheads of cloud or stone


That share the heavens as a realm o'erthrown!” [...]


Yosemite by George Sterling (1869, Sag Harbor – 1926, San Francisco)
