Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona - Poem by Henry Felton Huse - Postcard, c. 1940s


(3 1/2 x 5 1/2 In) This is an original vintage J. R. Willis, C. T. American Art postcard from the 1950s. It shows a view of Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona and "The Grand Canyon" a poem by Henry Felton Huse.

No brush can paint, nor pencil trace,
The charm and beauty of this place; 
Wonders that in this Canyon dwell,
No tongue of man can ever tell.
Assembled in this chasm deep,
Where lengthened shadows ever creep;
Are mountains, hills, majestic, grand,
Carved out by the Almighty's Hand.
Ten thousand landscapes merged in one,
Reflect the glories of the sun;
And colors in their brilliancy,
Surpass the glow of sunset sea.

Spellbound! One views the depths below,
Where tides of grandeur ebb and flow; 
In reverence and silent awe,
One worships God as n'er before."

The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, light wear at the edges, blunted corner tips.
