The Mountains of County Down
As I walk across these open fields of floral beauty|
Below the Mourne Mountains of County Down,
I am drawn to a peaceful cove by the edge of the sea
Where the pristine blue water gathers all around.
I sit here now in solitude meditating in this surround
As my mind is drifting here and there,
While memories and dreams collide with one another
Till my enlightened soul makes room for prayer.
Midnight and morning come together now
As a peaceful calm transcends my mind,
Preparing me for my climb to the top of the mountain
As I leave all my troubles behind.
It takes me most of the day to reach the summit
And when I arrive, I am speechless as I look down to see,
The splendor of the valley with its sheep, flowers and greenery
Met by the lacy white waves that wet the shores of the sea.
I couldn’t help but think, as I was standing there
How god created nature’s majesty…the seas and the skies,
Each flower, each tree and animal with all his love
So that we might feel it with our hearts and with our souls
Not just to simply see it with our eyes.
