Leaving Hallstatt ~ photo credit: Sharmagne Leland-St.John

by Sharmagne Leland-St.John

Veiled in gossamer mists 
Glacial mountains still covered with snow, 

You with your red umbrella held high 
Against the dark and moody sky

Below us the ancient alpine village 
Resting on its own reflection

Glimmer-glass black lake
Mirrors her beauty

The church steeple
A needle stitching earth  
To heaven 

Hear the lullaby 
Of distant chimes,  
Dulcet bells and vespers 

Echoed through the valley 
Until it becomes a whisper
