No sound -- but the rush of dark waters
Flowing deep in the misty ravine;
Jasmine and roses clinging
To the trellis of the deserted balcony.
Starry flowers like white jewels
In the dimness of magic stillness;
Beyond -- the glimmering snowy caps of Everest,
Below -- the heavy perfume of the garden
Dimly lighted by the blazing stars:
A pale rose gleamed like a pearl
Of the enchanted night.
Lustrous petals of peace --
Peace -- terror and reverence.
My heart is stilled with awe
As my thoughts turn to the sad faces
Of weary pilgrims, climbing, ever climbing
To the Peace of the Himalayas --
Eternal symbol of an invisible God.
