Strong and Silent Type

better to be a stone lion
on a pedestal under a tree

the strong and silent type

than part of humanity 

I’d rather be a tall sprawling mountain

with a blanket of snow on my face

with dangerous icy passes

forbidding the human race 

a river quietly flowing through a valley

on its way to a mighty sea

going where it wants to go 

that’s what I’d rather be 

never ending waves of motion

an ocean washing up on shore

never ending waves of motion

then out again once more

a north wind blowing in

sending a chill through the air

throwing bitter cold daggers

here, there, and everywhere
