Stephen Crane: XXVI from Black Riders

There was set before me a mighty hill,
and long days I climbed
through regions of snow.
When I had before me the summit-view,
it seemed that my labor
had been to see gardens
lying at impossible distances.

–Stephen Crane, from The Black Riders and Other Lines, XXVI
