Everest – A Poem

Stumbled across this poem, written by fellow WordPress blogger Brad Osborne, that capture a sentiment similar to my novel, “Suicide by Everest”. If you’re interested in reading more of Brad’s work you can do so at https://commonsensiblyspeaking.wordpress.com.

EVEREST

Oh, the wind-swept, lofty summit

That calls men to their death

Prayers offered in frozen breath

~~~

What magic be upon your peak

What treasures there, ripe and rife

That want to know may cost a life

~~~

Standing at the top of the world

Rare ground that few have trod

To look upon the face of God

~~~

For each there is something

Some great promise in the sky

And, for each, their reason why

~~~
