    The Seeker

    The view from the top was grand!
    For me, however
    There was such a thrill
    In the climb!
    Is there a higher peak?

    Mountain, Climbing Man

    The back ridge shivers as they climb,
    And tickles old man mountain.
    It creeps up one stone at a time.
    Pebbles dribble here,
    A rock slide wheezes there.
    At last he sneezes at the pass,
    "Avalanche", to all who dare!
