Gentling

Behold the towering top of Soracte
  Snow capped and quiescent
Gazing benevolently down
Upon lambs gambolling and flowers
    Of the forest opening

No longer does it feel enslaved
To the boiling passions of its once liquid
    Swirling innards
Which so often erupted with an invader's urge
  To possess and to destroy
   What it so desired.

Life is now calm
And beauty can be seen
For what it is.
Dispassionate appreciation 
Takes the place 
Of damnable domination.

If only the young could be schooled
In the hard won wisdom of the ancients
Then would we  walk hand in hand
Freely and fearlessly
