SNOW-CAPPED MOUNTAIN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Snow-capped mountain, so white, so tall
Last Line: Over the edge of the world!

SNOW-CAPPED mountain, so white, so tall,
The whole sea
Must stand behind you!
Snow-capped mountain, with the wind on your forehead,
Do you hold the eagles' nests?
Proud thing,
You shine like a lily,
Yet with a different whiteness;
I should not dare to venture
Up your slippery towers,
For I am thinking you lean too far
Over the Edge of the World!
