The Mountain Speaks

(This is a "childhood" poem, written many years ago.)

High above the pristine falls
the looming mountain lifts its walls.
A monolith of stony gray,
with bulky lips, it seems to say:
"Eons passed since I've been here;
nothing have I seen to fear
while above my walls, from year to year,
about the world below I peer.
My walls so high, so steep and strong,
protect me well from all that's wrong.
Would that Man below could see
how I keep all harm from me.
Would that he could build a wall
about his home, his family -- all --
to keep them safe from Evil's charm,
which causes Man unending harm."

    A lovely glimpse of why your talent shines so brightly now. What an insightful child with an understanding far beyond your years, I am sure.

    Ahhhh the walls...I know them well. You've captured this idea of building them so well. It's a defense it not? Well done, Enjoyed !!

    Gosh, you sure expressed a lot of wisdom in this poem, Leo. Lots of people build walls around themselves and refuse to let others get to know them. I'm taking the walls down so I can have more social interaction, but I understand what you're saying here. Well done! Love, Carolyn
