The Happiest Country

Why Switzerland

To hike the mighty Matterhorn,
 and sip sweet mountain wine.
To savor Swiss chocolate,
from the heavenly to sublime.
To meet a Saint Bernard;
brave dog of the “einschneien”.
To see where little “Heidi”
and her grandfather lived and pined.
To take the glacier train and cable car,
for the thrills and chills of an alpine climb.
To hear the boisterous singing and music;
alphorn, accordion and the yodeling kind…
Yes, that’s  definitely what I want to do,
when I visit Happy Switzerland next June.
