Guardians
Granite Guardian
Defying gravity and weather and probability,
sheer stubbornness holds up the mountain.
Given the chance, he would travel the globe,
but this gnome has work to do. Chipped
like an arrowhead, fit snugly in a quiver
of boulders that stir when he pulls on
his boots, he winks and warns, Heads up—
this place can shake off the unwary.
