The Mountain

Are all these stones yours I said to the mountain.

Pleased but reluctant to admit my praise could move it much,

Shook a little and rained a windrow ring of stones to prove it was so.

Stone felled I got up, addled with dust

And shook myself without much consequence.

Obviously, I said, it doesn't pay to get up too close to greatness.
