Of Mountains and Women

The hearts of mountains
   and the hearts of women
Are both the same. They beat to
   an old rhythm, an old song.

Mountains and women
   are made from the sinew of the rock.
Mountains and women
   are home to the spirits of the earth.
Mountains and women
   are created with beauty all around.
Mountains and women
   embrace the mystery of life.

Mountains give patience to women.
   Women give fullness to mountains.
Celebrate each mountain, each woman.
Sing songs to mountains and to women.
   Dance for them in your dreams.

The spirit of mountains and of women
Will give courage to our children
   Long after we are gone.
