Track Name: Four
walking once upon a landscape
like a human structure
rising from the earth with purpose

I felt muscles elevating me as my brain commanded
thankful for relief from entropy
this simple purpose

I stopped as I heard a thriving sound,
looked,
to find
soothing
sights
for
such sunburned and weary eyes as mine.

I stopped upon the summit
staring down at a concrete structure
I could feel that spring was nearer now

and that the world had done with dreariness
with the long grey winter,
standing on this man-made mountain
I felt the tremor

I felt the forgotten quickening
of
the earth
sensing
spring
and
I heard an awakening of man.

I heard the awakening of man
heard
silence
broken
by this
machine under me.

I smiled, sensing spring

I smiled, sensing spring.
