1. The Winding Path up the Mountain
I take the winding path up the grassy mountain,
Looking to my right, I see a white marble fountain,
Pouring a pool of pink liquid, its perfume tickling my nose,
Next to it, a lady is frozen as a statue and striking a pose.
Moving on, my breath catches up with my racing heart beat,
Getting faster as I approach flowers smelling so sweet.
A rabbit darts from its hiding place as my stomping boots
Move further onward up towards the trees dressed in fruits
I'm almost there, I can almost see the very top!
Finally reaching my journey's end, I'm glad I didn't listen to those who said "stop".
I conquered the winding path, completing the challenge it had bought,
The reward for my work is greater than I would have ever thought.
