CHINA, INDIA

I love this earth place passionately!

Ancient lands and still free!

Just who drove China to build that wall?

Pre-dawn of history.

.

.

Smooth topped mountains, just nowhere else!

Greenery everywhere!

Wide rivers flowing, houseboats floating,

Natural resources there!

.

.

The Eternal Snows decidedly

Cannot be matched at all!

Share with Tibet matchless majesty,

Heavenward!  Rise and fall!

.

.

Perfect view from a church yard high

Gazing down on clouds below! (*)

Fair hiding the greenery beyond,

Look up, see Eternal Snow!

.

.

As far as the eye can see both ways!

Kanchenjunga, Mount Everest, too!

Distance involved, Everest looks lower!

200 hundred feet difference the two.

.

.

Add Annapurna, high trinity,

Others can scarcely be smaller.

Eternal Snows most decidedly,

Grand view, nothing is taller!

.

.

This matchless sight inspires Godward!

Episcopal Church, I remember,

“Holy, Holy, Holy,” sung upon entering,

Majesty whitest splendor!

.

.

Inspired, of course, by the sight out there!

“Lord God Almighty,” we hear!

As we enter, of course, worshipfully!

Remembering it with a tear!

.

.

That hymn reminiscent of the matchless view!

White mountains gleaming bright!

God created!  What awaits in heaven?

Endless, fantastic sight!

.

.

I was eight or ten on that lofty height!

Will never forget that view!

The church that hymn so incredible!

As I strive to impress you!
