There is a place on Earth forever lost
Where a people live and unite in frost
 
Solitude and clarity within the air
Wondrous creatures lovingly laid bare
 
Sunlight on ice blazing like fire
Your eyes wild with childlike desire
 
An alien world galaxies away
Your soul succumbing come what may
 
Intelligent civilizations wanting for not
Instincts and knowledge mankind long forgot
 
A perfect being gazes into your eyes
With understanding and heart forever wise
 
If not for gravity you would be forgiven
For believing you are alone standing in heaven
 
Your heart will leap and your mind falter
It is none other than God’s frozen alter
 
… Antarctica
