Jerusalem - Poem by Sofia Kioroglou

Jerusalem
The city of Gold
Jerusalem
Where Jesus walked
O' Holy city,
Holiest of all
The land where Lord
on the Mount of Olives
would stand to talk.
You appear so beautiful,
with beauty so singular
no master wordsmith
could capture in verbal form,
no painter could accurately paint
on canvas with oil colors so vivid
and glorious as its past.

    erusalem
    Where Jesus walked
    O' Holy city,
    Holiest of all
    The land where Lord
    on the Mount of Olives
    would stand to talk. Jersualem the centre. where God revealed himself in HIs Son Jesus Christ.
