Ode to Petra

You are a Venus of beauty multiplying at night, As your City Lights adorably carpet each mountain, The moon smiles above you with its gleam so bright; A breathtaking view which a repertoire cannot even contain In admiration of your panorama springing like a fountain. The sun rejoices each day upon your vast splendid arid ground, As spectators stride along your cascading stream of gorges, You enchantingly cradle them into your bosom blissfully around; Your architectural stone-mountain range spectacularly astonishes, You are a Rose City- all is agog with your carved stones in red roses. Oh, Petra! You’re widely admired with your unique environment, A treasure of the world, the Nabataeans’ magnificent masterpiece; A haven of everyone’s dream to ride and walk on every pavement, Catering sumptuous experience in lavish pleasure making all feel at peace, And ‘tis ballad of mine isn’t even enough to laud your great wonder and grace.

    Sounds wondorous. The shape of your poem reminds me of a mountain near where I was born. The mountain is called Mount Cheminnis located near Virginiatown in Northern Ontario. Google it, it is a very unusual mountain in the middle of nowhere. No other mountains anywhere in site.
