Miner of the Mountain

There goes the miner of the mountain
from day’s first light straight
into tunnels dark
long abandoned by a rule of reason
his mind is fixed on, on the buried
star, that buried glow
of beauty’s bright golden soul

Tunnel in the dark so deep
keep on swinging ‘til the final sleep
a grave of glory
Tunnel through the dark descent
keep on swinging ‘til the heart is spent
It’s a fever of faith
that proves the soul awake

He may never unearth his equal
the vein of gold, brother of his blaze
Straining from all pasts unto all futures
spans the arc of what is always
the want and will to bare what’s been
hidden under hills

Tunnel in the dark so deep
keep on swinging ‘til the final sleep
a grave of glory
Tunnel through the dark descent
keep on swinging ‘til the heart is spent.
It’s a fever of faith
that proves the soul awake
