peaks that scrape the sky

to fear the mountains that you have not seen
strikes me as beyond odd as plain bizarre
there is no horror that could strike so far
nor any danger that might come between
that place and this you need to find the mean
of calm and order not to let things mar
the proper temper so that at the bar
to make all sober we might intervene
each new adventure has a painful price
in time and effort and we can't recall
the life so spent back to a happy place
but you don't ever want to hear advice
and are too eager to run out and fall
and then return with fresh tears on your face
