Wonders of the World

There are many wonders that cloud the world
Notable among them are the ultimate sevens 
You and I have heard about
(I believe this century is yet to discover
all the world wonders,
and again is not all of these famous sevens
we've all visited.)
These sevens
Form both the broad wonders of the world.

These illustrious sevens are odd havens
That make people world over
Paid homage to each of their host soil.
Day in, day out
People tour around 
These earthy heavens. 

Just like Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem,
The old and new wonders of the world
Serve as assets to their host kingdom.

They make their host land
Famous across the globe.
They garnish their boniface with 
Flying wealth across the land,
And swimming priceless 
Across the unified ocean.

I hope I will not be penalized to have generalized my findings. I 
think writing generally about where I've visited via research is the best.

    I'm not sure why but I was bit intimidated by this contest. Perhaps because I've never actually been to any of these seven wonders in person? (not sure if Stonehenge counts). But I think you did well considering and did a decent amount of research. Luck on the contest! If I'm feeling adventurous I might write one myself...
