We verge upon
the mountain's rise
with sundry tongues
to say we seek.

Emerging from divergent lands
we pilgrims pressed in steep ascent
must scale supernal mysteries
above all mundane histories.

No one among us
reigns the way
nor holds the sole map
which forbids.

We worthy searchers surge the slopes
pursue the unseen peak in hopes
perspectives lend us wiser sight
to find our paradise by night.
