Soldier Mountain

Mountain stately in the distance.
Garlanded in hardwood artistry.
Showing no sign of weakness,
Only calm against monstrosity.

Festooned in fall’s vibrant colors.
Bedazzling eyes in morning light.
Strong and stable unlike others,
Courageous and steady for any fight.

Banners arching brightly against darkened sky.
Throwing last glow softly.
Rigid edges blurred on high,
Harking all to speak softly.
