The Himalayas - Poem by Romesh Chunder Dutt
The towering Himalaya rose,
Surpassing- mighty Meru high.
To view the limits of wide space,
Perchance to scale the lofty sky!
Eternal sunshine on his face,
His back in ceaseless gloomy night,
Like Siva in dark tusker-skin,
His face with radiant smiles all bright!
Dwellers of earth and sky and heaven
Mutually unseen here dwell;
This range, itself a perfect world.
Displaying Sarabhu's mighty skill!
All white the heaven-kissing peaks,
With glittering gold the plateaus streaked.
And bright as autumn's Heecy clouds
With golden glittering lightning decked!
Like peopled towns the mountain plateaus
Streaked with gems which silk-like beam,
And creeper grots by nymphs frequented
Which like sylvan dwellings seem!
Aloft, the rainless, sparkless clouds.
In white and fleecy masses piled,
Are like the mountain's giant wings,
Far-extending, vast and wild!
