      This poem is a revision of one I placed on Witchvox Poetry under the
      screen name Research wizard. It was inspired by a painting by Niels
      Bjornson Moller, "Mountain Landscape with Tourists". A link to an
      image of the painting is below:

      MOUNTAIN TOURISTS

      James F. Newell

      The quite mind
      Before cars
      Ambles slowly
      With a walking stick
      And horse
      Through the folds
      Of glacier mountains.

      An old log barn
      Beyond this pause
      May be a place
      To spend the night.

      Huge lichen decorated rocks
      Jut up among
      The swaths of pine,
      For the land's new come
      From coverings
      Of olden ice.

      A fallen trunk,
      Thick, long, branching,
      Makes a bridge
      Across a narror gorge,
      If the tourists
      Wished to leave
      The trail to enter
      Pure wilderness.

      They won't choose that
      Because they came
      For both wilderness
      And path.

      Spells require
      Both
      A little form
      And a little wildness.
