A shining road of gold
on the ice blue water's face
dark mountain in the distance
which will win the race?
the road like fire is dancing
molten colour on the sea
stands fast the silent mountain
a whispering in its trees
slowly sinks the orb once more
'neath the mountain's rugged face
the road, it fades and vanishes
which has won the race?
the mountain high obscures the sun
yet, still cannot hide the glow
rose-hued above in a turquoise sky
a fountain of colours flow
