Titans of Earth
By Harold Symmes
Sierran Summits

PEAK upon peak uptowering, these mountain giants rise,
Piercing with their summits the far cerulean skies,—
Mighty shouldered Titans relentlessly uphurled
In the grinding pack and pressure that, battling, builds the world.
With slow corroding fingers Time wears their bastions low,        5
Wreathing the gaping gashes with garlands of her snow.
