ANCIENT HILLS

Boldly slashing the horizon
Your distant blue peaks 
great 
beacons
Beacons of hope, beacons 
of love
Beacons of unyielding 
greatness
Beacons of strength.
From you spring our noble 
gardens
Of smiling blue roses
Growing defiantly on bare 
rocks
Steadily sparring many giant 
thorns.

These ancient hills
Motherly cradling a 
pampered 
race
Of me, of you, of these 
steadfast 
people
Proudly flooding the promise 
land.

I cry within a foreign soil
For just another sip of your 
gentle 
river
But soon, yes soon
When the winds blow south
I shall find my way once more
To your homely sunlit 
summit.

    Beautiful poem; homesick for the land of one's birth.
