Taman Negara Kinabalu Travel Guide: 271 reviews and 543 photos

We take a long drive,
Up to the mountain side.
We take a long night walk,
Up the summit trail.

We watch the full moon set,
Over the lakes of cloud below.
Lights from Laban Rata sparkles
Like distant stars under the clouds.

As we reach the top,
The sun is just rising on the horizon.
So many magnificent colors,
Fill the sky’s clouds.

As we look around,
We see nature’s beauty.
Stunning tweezed plants
Grow out of cracks between barren rocks.
Tiny flowers bloomed in glorious colors
Freshen in mountain dew.

We can feel the crispy breeze,
As it flurries past.
We can smell the sweetness
Of the thin mountain air.

We take a long walk,
Down the summit trail.
We take a long drive,
Down the mountain side.

Mother Natures Cove by Sunny

Smile on my face
as I dangle my feet

Clear spring water
with orchids so bright

Breathtaking view
just a relaxing adventure

This hidden cove hideaway
shall renew my vision

Misty morning sky
natures mist bath

Nestle shall I along
the blades of green grass

Just an intoxicating moment
within Mother Natures Cove

Taste the Night by Silver Wolf

Taste the liquid crystal sky
The sweetness of the night
Feel the depths of darkness cry
The stars are tears of light

The mirror moon is hung with care
From silver cobweb strands
The darkest backdrop lingers there
Held up with giant hands

Deep blue and endless lake of space
Enchantment of the eyes
A swinging sheet of splendour grace
Encompassing the skies

No powers can support that ball
No powers can impound
One day from out the sky will fall
And bounce across the ground

An icy pool of moon-spun light
Surrounds that hoary sphere
Intoxication of midnight
The wine of shadows here

When day retreats to hide its beams
Then is the night unfurled
And peace seeps out in glorious dreams
Inebriates the world

(Encompassing basically means surrounding. Hoary is nothing to do with prostitutes, it means silvery. Inebriates means to make drunk.)
