Kids poem: The man and the mountain

Discussion in 'Quotes & Poems' started by Yours, May 5, 2016.

  1. Mountain, with thy firm old foot
    Fast beside the sea,
    What was in thy keeping put,
    Prisoned under thee ?

    "Hark, and hear the shuddering ground!
    Feel it rock and quake !
    Struggling fires, beneath me bound,
    Strive their chains to break."

    Mountain, with a cloudy vest
    Girded o'er thy heart,
    Does it pierce thine aged *phcorner*,
    When its lightnings dart ?

    " No : beneath me far, the crash
    Of the bolt is felt :
    Here the fiery chain and flash
    But adorn my belt."

    Mountain, with a snowy crown,
    Stainless on thy brow,
    Wilt thou never cast it down
    Never, never bow ?

    " When the mandate I shall hear
    From my Maker's throne,
    I will bow and disappear,
    Hence to be unknown."

    Mountain, holding proud and high
    Thine old hoary head,
    What is written on the sky,
    Thou so long hast read ?

    "Brighter than the stars and sun
    Shining over me,
    I behold the name of ONE
    Thou must die to see !"

    Mountain, bold thine eloquence
    Glowing is thy speech ;
    Mighty import flashes thence ;
    What is it to teach ?

    "Thoughts of Him, before whose breath
    I shall melt away ;
    While of thee, soul- -spirit, death
    Ne'er shall quench a ray !"
