The Old Mountains

by: Edwin Curran

The old mountains are tall, silent men
Standing with folded arms, looking over the world,
Lonesome and lofty in their manner.

The Old Mountains 2.

They have seen empires come and go,
Civilizations rise and fall,
Stars break on their breasts.

The Old Mountains 3
.

They are full of history like great books,
And are merely the stone monuments that the kindly God
Built for the human race, to mark its grave tomorrow.
