A view from the top of Mount Washington (the highest mountain east of the Mississippi). Stunning to stand with the clouds at eye level! For the beauty of the earth, For the beauty of the skies, For the Love which from our birth Over and around us lies: Christ , our God , to Thee we raise This our Sacrifice of Praise. For the beauty of each hour Of the day and of the night, Hill and vale, and tree and flower, Sun and moon and stars of light: Christ , our God , to Thee we raise This our Sacrifice of Praise.
The lamp-posts are poetical...the lamp-post really has the whole poetry of man, for no other creature can lift a flame so high and guard it so well. --G K Chesterton, London Times July 24, 1909.
