Best Poem of Hm. Nes

Mount Everest

Sir Edmund Hillary first achieved
(For centuries unattained)
The summit of earth's highest peak,
And what did he there gain?

So many corpses linger there,
Of those arrived or no,
To strike a pose atop the world,
Then turn and back down go.

All climbers lose, if not their lives-
Their minds at least are numbed.
Most simply fail to reach the top,
By tragedies overcome.

Yet on and on the climbers come;
The challenge must be taken.
For God has placed Mount Everest there-
So low, so far below His throne
That never will be ...
