The Mountain

Lintel,1982

Alone, a woman climbs a gigantic mountain.
When she starts, she is confident
the Summit will be reached in a week or two.

She is mistaken.

"She climbs for weeks, months, years -
and still does not reach the Summit.
Can she ever reach it?
Is it there? The one person who might know is a bizzare,
ugly Mountain Man she meets on a lofty trail.
Gradually, tender love develops.
Will they climb on together or settle down
to create a family among the towering slopes?"
