The Rainy Mountain

Written by: Chokri Omri

On the top of it 
and down to the river
The rain drops 
are carefully falling.
Around, everything 
looks up in wonder
The mountain too 
but always up amazing
Never has it looked down, 
before, now or after.
The mountain is always up and patient
And people feel pride after climbing.
Little do they know the way to it is eminent!
But who wants to pay heed? Who cares?
The sun does not set but hides behind it.
And as you see! 
The clouds meet 
and kiss the head of it.
Take this then from time 
both ancient and modern:
During wind and rain,
The mountain is patient.
During love and hatred,
The mountain is patient.
But when it gets angry, 
Please forgive and forget.
