Once you have lived with mountains
Under the whispering pines
And deodars, near stars
And a brighter moon,
With wood smoke and mist
Sweet smell of grass, dew lines
On spider-spun, sun-kissed
Buttercup and vine,
Once you have lived with these,
Blessed, God’s favourite then,
You will return
You will come back
To touch the trees and grass
And climb once more the windswept mountain pass.
Wanderlust takes you back to the mighty mountains .
