Newcastle upon Tyne, UK
When flying from Nepal to Thailand,
I was given a “good-side” seat;
And, as I looked out the plane window,
The view I saw was really neat.
For breaking through a thick sheet of cloud
Were the high Himalayan peaks;
And, rising the highest of them all,
Mount Everest – heaven bespeaks!
