Mountain, steep and jagged, tough,
And crowned with searing cold, the winter snow;
Past the horizon staring,
O’er the clouds below.
Behold the sight, grandeur!
In you, we glimpse Immensity.
Seedling, little, delicate,
Cherished, born from sweat and blood and pain,
Such tender care receiving;
Oblivious you remain.
The sower’s sacrifice – an image of Maternity.
