About the Book Come Climb a Mountain

You must come climb a mountain with me
So that you can see,
The valley lawns,
The lacy streams,
The ships about the seas.

You must come climb a mountain with me -
The sun will be our host -
And you will see
The singing thrush,
The white-winged swan,
The man dumping garbage by the sea.

You must come climb a mountain with me,
And you will know the wind,
The skying pines will be our grass,
The cloud-puffed hills our trees,
We´ll watch as Herod´s soldiers work,
See Ceasar´s ships at oar,
Odysseus´ bow,
Prometheus´ chain,
Lucifer and Michael´s war.

You must come climb a mountain with me
So that you can see,
Above the cold and careless waves,
And the ceaseless rolling sea.
You´ll see the deafened cardboard judge
Wash in the Lady´s eyes,
And hear the numbing siren´s wail
Across the blackened skies,
And the woman´s failing music
In their lucid Paradise.

You must come climb a mountain with me
So that you can see,
Above the cold and careless waves,
And the ceaseless rolling sea.
