One of the reasons why Colorado is the playgorund of America. There's a place where the gold of heaven Just rips when sunsets glow. Where the picuturesque pine and the coy columbine And the timberline mignonette grow. There's a region of wonderful whispers That drift through the nation-old trees There are purples and red, in the shifting cloud-beds That change with each echoful breeze. There are valleys that yet are nameless And mountains that spike the sky And the regal blue spruce, that e're will produce A charm to seduce the eye. There are canyons that yawn as they grip you. There are sentinel rocks austere - There are operas unsung there are pictures unhung And silences made to hear. Tis a storehouse of luring landscapes. Colorado - the home of the dawn. The rare land of fancy and tru necromancy Where fairies n vacany spawn. You have stilledus ad thrilled us with wonder You have shown us the old earth in yourth. From somewhere cut yonder, you taught us to ponfrt On lessons of infinite truth. Clem Yore, the authour of this poem. whose home is in Estes park, is a well known writer whose name is often seen in the leading magazines. Colorado is a land of perpetual enchantment for the lover of nature and the great out-of-doors. There is a greater variety of mountains scenery within its borders than in any other state, and 46 of the 59 highest peaks in the U. S. are found in Colorado.
