Jerusalem


At Mt. Scopus we stood and were awed by this city
An old city from time memorial where you can see the past
The present and the future merge in one
A panoramic view is not enough to breathe in these sights
Ancient walls along the old city and new malls in the new city
Even the Tower of David is a few steps from a modern city
In the center is Ben Yehuda and it looks like London or Greenwich
With entertainers, drummers and a throng of people
Bus stops, blue and green colored buses are what you see
At the Wailing Wall people gather everyday to pray
Nearby is the Dome of the Rock, the Holy Sepulcher
There is much more to see, yet for now this is all

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In 2014, I visited Jerusalem in Israel twice and its was quite an experience. A place of history, religion and the future, this city is impressive. I hope to visit this city again and spend more time there. I was inspired to write this poem by my family, who one day will also visit this famous city.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
