To My Mountain
By Mahdah Payson
  O MY mountain, my mountain—
Enveloped in your cloak of snow
Can you hear?
  Temple of my night,
Cradle of my day,        5
Can you hear?
  I warn you of the braggart of the sky,
The sun! the sun!
He outruns my warning words
To steal your snows,        10
O my mountain, my mountain.
  Great body-guard of God—
Can you hear?
