Mount Caburn

O, to be here on the clearest day
And see as far as eye can see
For haze does bar my vision’s wanted way
So limiting this grand infinity.

For what I see defies the scope of men:
All sky, all blue, all heights, all earth, all green.
This vista, inspiration to my pen,
Calls forth the life of things unseen.

Dig into the verdant earth.
Exhume the history below.

We stand on memories of utter worth,
On what is lost that we do wish to know.
