Another Mountain

At last, at long last,

Another mountain wears my shadow,

Another cliff eroded in my wake,

Another bed of grime branded with my victorious print.

Goodness keep you up there, sun, for I have found you again!

Though I’m sure to keep you this time. Ha ha!

But, what is this?

A new mountain,

Another mountain whose shadow I wear,

whose burden I bear, despite the victory

I’ve left behind me.

Perhaps it continueth forever.
