Upon great mountains

Ancient, powerful mountains

Standing as guardians to

valleys below.

From the stone and sand that

man arose.

 

Glorious mountains.

Peacefully embraced.

 

I watched as Moses descended

bringing forth the commandments of God.

I've stood beneath Olympus

at the dawn of civilization.

The beautiful burnt amber

of the changing leaves

as Autumn ushers in the winter.

The echo of moonshine and

gunpowder

from the families who battle for

soil -

awash in familiar blood.

 

Atop these great mountains

The Angels soar as golden eagles.

 

Ancient mountains

At peace in your magnificent grace.
