My Massive Friends


I'm in the company of my massive friends

And their shimmering mirrors that ripple and blend

These northern pyramids into precious diamonds,

Uncut and rugged, a geometric prism.

They lend me their spirit and just for a minute

I'm completely released from my mortal prison.


 For cathedral county is where we are.

They stretch and lean and reflect as far

As you'll ever really need to see,

My massive friends protecting me.


 The paradox of nature's dance,

Their beauty and their malevolence

As they terrify and menace me,

Yet I feel that they look after me

With their distant summits and crashing scree.
