The Giant of Capsheaf Crag

With winter's season he arrives
And sits upon the crag
He never moves but only weeps
Blue flowers by his side

Unmoving he through blizzard's snow
His sorrows ride the winds
His tears go trickling on the rocks
To the glacier far below

When winter fails he goes at last
To the mountain far above
And comes not back til winter blows
And the harvest moon has passed

I know not why the giant comes
A vigil or duty to those gone
or hope of a departed's return
Or the ghost of a lost love

I only know he always has
That his vigil never fails
That he is constant as the stars
And that he'll never pass.
