Along the Canyon

Exposed and vulnerable, we are,
To be so high, and out so far;
Along the canyon past recall
With thoughts of beauty, fear and fall

For every hint out on the air,
And every solace we might find,
There is a terror comes to mind
Of what cruel fate might give us there

But there, along the canyon, we
Will take it in as best we can;
And join our place in destiny
Of those aware how small
Is man
