once upon a time

MOUNTAIN ROADWAY

MOUNTAIN ROAD

Built as a serpentine
 The mountainous road
Lets us clings tightly to the
Refuge offered.

Struggling forwards the
 Mountain people take
 It in their stride striving onwards,
 On winding roadway each step a danger.
 In a life of unforgiving poverty
If you slip no one can help.


No love lost on natures wonders
Each footfall a battle toiling, and
 Striving to arrive before the sun sets.
Home at last no matter how dire:-Home.
 Is the hearts rest: - At peace...
