The Backside of Killington Mountain

Killington Mountain, one of the largest Ski resorts in New England.
With its webbing of trails, dotted with colourful kaleidioscopic ski outfits;
racing to the Castle they call a Base Lodge.

My Cabin is atop a mountain across two valleys from Killington's backside
I can see the untamed, wild and free side of Mother Nature's: True being
Where deers have no fears, and the Bald Eagle soars Free

I once did a recue mission there, and when all were safe, I walked
Into the forrest of Nature,where mankind had never before intruded
I walked where the Deer, Bed. where the eaglets squawked for food

I saw the Black Bear awake; "Good Morning Mrs. Black Bear"she Yawned
And walked away.I heard the Evergreens giggle as melting snow ticked Pines
The Serenity,Tranquility,enveloped me in Nature's Wonder of the World.
      Inspired by Linda(PD) with her Contest: 7 Wonders of the Ancient and
                     New World. This POEM is one of my 7 Wonders.
This is Dedicated to all POETS who have written about the Autrocitys of 
Mankind to "  Nature or THE Beauty of Mother Nature in Rhyme "
                           This is not a Contest Entree

    HG, I like your unique approach to PD's contest and am eager to see how she judges the contest on your using your own personal "wonder" of the world. I kind of like YOUR way of doing it even better than having to focus on the factual wonders of the world. Well done. I can see your love of nature in this one.

    How lucky is anyone who has close proximity to such wildland. We live in the country, and also have a mountain cabin in the Plumas Nat'l forest....so I know about nature, and how important it is for us to save it from the hand of man's carelessness! I love reading this one, H.G. ! Love your dedication!
