HIMALAYA, by            
First Line: I stood upon a pinnacle of stone
Last Line: I felt the majesty of nature wait.
Subject(s): Himalayas (mountains)

I stood upon a pinnacle of stone,
And saw a day advance upon the world:
The reach of distance brooded there alone,
A width of darkness in the deep was furled;
Across the bounden front of outer space,
A breath of motion drew one veil aside
To let the inarticulate of grace
Upon an avalanche of question ride.
There sealed Silence kept her limpid jar
Of potency ineffable -- restraint --
And Life, the all-abundant, from afar,
Poured resurrection on the last complaint.
And there, in awful mystery of state,
I felt the majesty of nature wait.
