Twenty-two stands high above a valley
Wondering which town will be its own.
Each field below is like a vivid dream
Nestled by the necklace of a stream,
Though distance makes the water still as stone.
Years wait, a treasure time will someday tally.

There is an unfelt fear that makes one dally,
Winds whispering of more than can be known,
Of shadows deeper, colder than they seem.
