Grace of fallen day, which lies upon mysteries untold,
Formidable, unmoving mountains behold.
Wet and cool lay the forest of green,
remaining hidden from the doctrines of man and its Pharisees.
Ever so, it climbs, unending into the sullen sky,
Hiding its secrets from dark eyes, which pry.
Rivers below twist on raged stony walls
grinding ever patient, eclipsing unto cascading falls.
Oh, what glory this place hath to me bequeathed
As I in newfound spirit rise hence from the firma beneath.
So, speak now unto the rising cool mist
And feel my presence, as I unto eternal glory exist.
