Mountain Song Has a Path to the Snows

Mountain song has a path to the snows
High over ice floes
Birds in hollows below
Warning in the leafy surround

Up here is peace
After you grunt through
Storms and streams
To this cabin at the peak

Snow otters greet you around your feet
White goose carries food to table
Snow owl harvests herbs with its beak
Sunrise glistens on the beams

Now I am singing
I am saying
Many tears water the climb
To the summit
And the dead lie scattered
Frozen in the crevasses
