Thirty-seven sings of mountain glory,
Having settled down to what will be.
In dreams there is a tincture of regret
Regarding hopes that haven't happened yet,
The residue of what was lost at sea.
Yet thirty-seven knows quite well that story.

Sing, then, of mountains--wind-shaped, root-sheared, hoary,
Each rising like the mist in mystery,
Vistas motionless and passionate,
Emblems of the heart's own ecstasy,
Needing nothing in their patient fury.
