Two Odes to Bear Mountain

I.

Three horizons:
two hills in front as I know them
and another one behind.

Where it touches the sky,
a third range of blue shadow:
the train of night
not quite fallen away.

II.

From the highest
point, not even a bird.
The silence pristine
and I, another boulder or tree.
