Mountain Stream

                                                               

                                       

                                MOUNTAIN   STREAM


                                
                        Mountain stream  oh!  Mountain stream.
                        Tell me; tell me; where you’ve been.	
.                       What you’ve seen, and what you’ve heard       
                        And I will whisper, not a word. 

                        You have heard the songbird’s chorus.
                        Dimmer now than yesterday.
                        Voices, voices in the ripples.
                        But I know not what they say.

                        You have known the mount in winter,
                        Known its steely icy grip.
                        Felt the rain and sleet and snow.
                        Tell me tell me what you know.

                        Of mountains high and rivers deep,
                        Of waterfalls and canyons steep.
                        Of natures calm and fury sweep,
                        Through mountain storms,
                        When no man sleeps. 

                        I see the wonder and the beauty,
                        As ever onwards you do go.
                        But what you say we’ll never know.
                        As onwards to the sea you flow

    You've captured both the mystery of wonder of these sylvan and alpine themes--ones with which I'm familiar, having grown up Utah and spending my most of my professional years in Colorado, both states with mountainous areas. I enjoyed being transported by your words back to those memorable places and experiences.
