Shangri-la

Shangri-la

Sequestered palace,
Mountain stronghold.
Bright repository
Of wisdom.

Refulgent in isolation,
A perpetual summer
Enshadows thee
With secrecy.

Mankind's great folly
Shatters all around
As, still secure
You sleep.

From the inferno
Of sad yesterday's,
From ashes will
Come truth.

If nothing remains
On destruction's eve
Still you keep
Knowledge.

From thy slumber
Awake and now see
The purpose
Given thee.

Centuries of quiet
Not been in vain,
We cry out
For help.
