Cathedral on the Hill
(A 3X Poem)
Cathedral high on city hill
Set there on the highest hill
Light that brightens up that hill
Keeps the evening sky so still
See it there above my town
Shining jewel that crowns the town
The glow of God lights this town
Like a lovely golden gown
Placed high above the river
Brightly framed by that river
Blesses home along the river
The sight gives me a shiver
Sparkling glow of shadowed light
Spots the town with beams of light
Water shimmers with that light
A vivid vision in the night

The there are luxury apartment buildings along its bank complete with lighted walkways. the rest od the downtown around it is subdued with dotted light here and there. It sits in the highest hill in the downtown St. Paul, Minnesota area.
