Poem: ‘The Beauty of Switzerland’

The miniature and multicolored cables cars
Set off in a blink of an eye from side to side
While penetrating through the immeasurable
Atmosphere of the natural world.

The majestic summit
ascends like a shimmering twilight as
misty cumulus clouds fade away behind the
incandescent, crimson, golden sun. Ice-cold,
frosty snow envelops the brown colored,
life-size mountains.

As the cable cars proceed abruptly downward,
the vast region occupies the luxuriant meadow
with black and white patterned cows. A breezy
current of air propels the evergreen trees as the
leaves collapse adequately to the flourishing grass.

The wintry weather reveals ambiance on the evergreen
trees of the detaching of the leaves. Perceiving the sound
of the jingling bells dangling from the cow’s neckline
leads to peacefulness that inhabits the expanse.
