Emerging from the shadowlands of time before recall,
Unfolding realms of conquering tribes and others that would fall.
Remote kingdoms, fortressed by high castle walls of stone,
Over time, gave birth to states, for years, the world has known.
Patrician ways evolved to current customs, land by land,
Enhancing life for all the world as people groups expand.
From the sunny climes and balmy bays of the Mediterranean Sea,
To fjords of Scandinavia, where Arctic waters freeze,
White Cliffs of Dover, the Black Forest, the Rock of Gibraltar,
Meandering rivers, mountain chains, all sights of great allure.
Creations' handiwork displayed across the vast terrain,
Inspiring humble minds to move beyond, to greater gain.
Magnificent cathedrals and enthralling symphonies
Conceived by native prodigies of utmost expertise,
Chemistry and Math, genetics and Astronomy,
European scientists advanced no small degree.
The impact of the printing press still leaves its mark today,
Knowledge, understanding, grown, by messages conveyed.
A treasure trove of sculpture, paintings, every form of art,
Cherished, faithfully preserved, sets this land apart.
Inquisition stunned, Bubonic Plague took quite a toll.
The Wars hit hard and Communism gained a stranglehold.
Chernobyl devastated lives, but through it all itís clear
Europeís contribution to the world should be revered.
