Look Down From A Hilltop

Look Down From A Hilltop

A Poem by Mehul Rwat

I used to view the scene from this cliff almost everyday but the thought of writing a poem on it came to me when one day after rain I saw this magnificent serene sight till as far as the eye can see.

When I look down from my school
which lies on top of a hill,
I get filled with peace and charm
as all seems very still.

The corridor behind our class 
is the best place to be,
For it is from here one can view the vast
Terai* plains to as far as one can see.

I like to gaze at the gentle slopes or
the brooks in the valley.
And the stream that escapes the lake
by making a forceful sally.

Far away in the horizon I can see
a mighty river,
And to the other side I see-
hills that go on forever.

The gentle hills are in a zig-zag form-
one partly behind the other,
They are all covered with mighty trees,
ferns and heather.

Sometimes I see little clouds drifting away,
filled up with fun.
And I see black birds flying swiftly
as if straight to the sun!

So if you get a chance to come to our school-
you must be sure you peep,
At this magnificent marvelous sight and
with joy you may weep!

(*terai- foothills.)

It always fascinates when one see out of the window in school. But when it is on a hill top, the scenery is heaven!

I agree with the other reviews out here. The poem is really written in a very nice style. One review states that Stanza 5 is a bit choppy. I agree with it. You may change it a bit. Rest of the poem is beautiful.

Quite well-written for your speed. Some of the rhyming words you place seem a little forced, so maybe flow could be a bit better in stanzas 5 and 7. Also, the way you spelled marvellous is actually marvelous. Other than that, I really liked the imagery you gave, keep up the good work!
