Subject(s): Mountains; Hills; Downs (Great Britain)

The veil of night-mist drawn aside,
Mount Kingston shoulders into view;
A deep blue pile of mighty slopes,
That rise, and sweep with grandeur up
To heights that breathe of infinite.
The first sun rays slant up to crown
The topmost peak, mauve-shaded gold;
Daylight sifts through a waving sea
Of green tree tops, which overflows
The slopes around a granite cliff --
A cosmic tablet, etched by storms
And seared by years on years of sun;
High up above a pine leans out
A broken, bare-limbed forest shell,
On which gray-headed eagles perch
And look down on a pigmy world.
