Castle Crags Montagne

Castle Crags Montagne

You have the resolve to breathe Shasta
As you were intended to master
And you should resolve to use that fuel
To rapidly unspool
A vast expanse of kicking mistings
Which pushes along a
Train of “if” and “yet” existings

Now is not the time to plaster up
And stow avalanches

Now is the time to think
And stand tall like the mountain

Now is the time to grind and erase
Now is the time to shine and brace
Take the slopes of granite rock
And cliffs of sudden Siskiyou drops

As the castle to your castor
And crags of your forsworn
Breathe the ivesia and aster
Love the oaks and whitethorns

With your stone office
And rigid map rooms
With banquet halls
And ornate ballrooms
Buried under acres of dirt
Founded upon baroque geode
Brick work

Sit atop your mountain throne
To think of your resolve
Cast the die
Dice will roll
Cast aside
Old era woes
