The Mountains Are A Lonely Folk

Hamlin Garland

The mountains they are silent folk,
They stand afar-alone;
And the clouds that kiss their brows at night
Hear neither sign nor groan.
Each bears him in his ordered place
As soldiers do, and bold and high
They fold their forests round their feet
and bolster up the sky.
