This post is Part 25 of a writing series titled Stories and Poems About Mountains.

In feeble, stuttering lines of metaphor,
In childish epigrams of human wit,
In simple rhyme and rhythmic cadences,
The wisest thoughts of man are poorly writ.
In towering snow-capped peaks and ice-cold streams,
In evergreens sprung from the fertile sod,
In majesty of woods and fields, are rhymes
And rhythms of the poetry of God.
