Are There Any Mountains Left to Name?

Are there any mountains left to name?

Is there any forest yet untamed?

Is there any inch of earth that has not been trapped and claimed?

Are there any mountains left to name?

 

Are there any stories yet untold?

Is there any theme that’s not grown old?

Will love and death and promises forever be the mold?

Are there any stories left untold?

 

Are there any words not yet been said?

Is discovery of language long since dead?

Has every single syllable passed through some person’s head?

Are there any words not yet been said?

 

There are mountains that I have not climbed.

There are stories that I have not heard.

And all around me, dancing softly, there are hidden words.

 

But are there any mountains left to name?
