I always thought beyond the hill
lay a mystery I might reveal

just around a bend in the creek
a sandy beach just out of reach

far to the west in a hidden valley
a golden claim and a grand finale

or deeper in the misty swamp
a hermit's hut or witch's haunt

in the heavens truth concealed
only waited to be revealed

as I approach the journey's end
I found the ground I can defend

and you may find as I did too
it does not hide beyond our view

we seek for it like a prize to win
until we discover it lies within
