Deceptive Beauty

Innsbruck’s evening stirs the heart of man

In obvious winter, the river

Calmingly seeking to soothe life’s fears

Pastel buildings comfortingly lit

Mountains reaching to heaven invite

Lights embedded in cliffs on high call

The bridge upholding the Cross and Lord

Majesty in heart and beauty stir!

Yet against the holy sacrifice

In defiance, a flag reminds some

War exists within His creation
