    Mountains for my mansion

Best Poem of Howard Simon

~ I Choose The Mountain~

The low lands call
I am tempted to answer
They are offering me a free dwelling
Without having to conquer

The massive mountain makes its move
Beckoning me to ascend
A much more difficult path
To get up the slippery bend

I cannot choose both
I have a choice to make
I must be wise
This will determine my fate

I choose, I choose the mountain
With all its stress and strain
Because only by climbing
Can I rise above the plain

I choose the mountain
And I will never stop climbing
I choose the mountain
And I shall forever be ...

Read the full of ~ I Choose The Mountain~

Progressive Rolling

I saw some rocks
Skipping down hill
They jumped so joyfully
It gave me a thrill

Dislodged by falling rain
They seemed so proud to be free
They seemed to have been aware
Of their brand new destiny
