Could anyone please tell me what's wrong with the placing of the word 'rose' in this sentence? My teacher said it should come after 'the Himalayan mountains':
'To the north, where the Heaven of the Gods and the round earth meet, rose the Himalayan mountains like a clear line towards the blue sky'
To me it sounds okay or am i just getting mixed up with the Danish grammar?

Anglika has explained everything; I'd only like to add that inversion is also typical for fairy tales:
In came the ogre and said, "Fee,fy, fo, fum,
I smell the blood of an Englishman..."
I am sorry if the fee,fy... is misspelt - I only heard it, but didn't see.
It's usually spelt 'fie' - Jack and the Beanstalk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia . But if you go to that link, the first thing you see is a picture with the spelling 'fi' in the caption. What matters is the sound, and you know that.
