"The mountaintop"

Looking down on vistas of all distant life
Harking to the distant song on the sweetest fife
Scanning all that moves below in forest
Still the song leaves echoes of the chorus
Scaling down that mountain is adventurous indeed
Immersed in vale's minutia is a challenge to the creed
The distant view from mountaintop is easy on the heart
Engaging in the every day is challenge from the start
The whirling tempest of the valley sets relentless pace
To keep one's head is paramount in such an enclosed space
So, tumble down the mountain on into the valley's arms
And find, up close, that life is but a myriad of charms
