It is time for me to cross the mountain. 

It is time for me to cross the mountain. 

And find another shore to darken with my pain.

And find another shore to darken with my pain.

Another pain for me to darken the mountain.

And find the time, cross my shore, to with it is be.

— from “Paradelle for Susan” by Billy Collins
