MOUNT EVEREST

MOUNT EVEREST

A Poem by M.Babu
"

Personal Tribute to George Mallory

MOUNT EVEREST

The path to your summit,

Is all covered in brush,

Sleet and ice

from the sky’s permit.

Treacherous trails to

your steepest peak.

I watch my footing

Resolved to seek.

Your breathtaking beauty,

Atop the world.

Meant for me and you

And a few tough birds.

I’ll rappel for days,

Swing from boulders.

To rest my face,

On your awing shoulders.

You’ve been my lover,

For far too long,

From childhood days,

We’ve grown more strong.

Entwined, interlinked

Bound for life,

Together we’ll be,

Through pain and strife.

I’ve got few minutes

To savor your beauty.

Where the Sky and Earth

Embrace in treaty.

Darkness threatens,

But your powerful thrill,

Stuns my soul.

Sends my shoulders chills.

Boundless aesthetics,

Nature’s swirling color.

You, my love, are a

Beauty donor.

It’s time to leave,

Our time is brief.

But the memory of you

From me, won’t leave.

Descension begins,

You’ve taken my breath,

Aghast with happiness,

I fall to my death.

/Where the Sky and Earth
Embrace in treaty.
Darkness threatens,
But your powerful thrill,
Stuns my soul./

A great tribute to a great mountain and the adventuring spirit of Man.

This is so beautiful, I especially love the ending
"Descension begins,
You’ve taken my breath,
Aghast with happiness,
I fall to my death."
