GRANITE HANDS, by ELIZABETH ROBERTS
First Line: The great granite hands of the mountain
Last Line: Strong hands were built for shelter.
Subject(s): Mountains; Hills; Downs (Great Britain)
The great granite hands of the mountain
Hold so gently such fragile things;
Aspens and wild roses,
Shy deer and timid rabbits,
Tiny chipmunks and little birds,
The thin veil of falling waters,
Wind drifting through the pines,
Mist and sunset colors
And shifting cloud shadows.
Strong hands were built for shelter.
