Everest Poem

everest
(travellertheworld)

If I was a little bird,
This is where I’d go,
To the top of Mount Everest,
To fly around the snow...
The tallest peak,
On the Earth,
The highest place to be,
I’d look down,
On the world,
Imagine what I’d see...
The Himalayan mountain range,
Nepal and Tibet,
Climbers climbing inch by inch,
Not the summit yet...
29,035 feet,
Up there in the sky,
If I was a little bird,
That is where I’d fly...
