1494. Moonrise in the Rockies
 
By Ella Higginson
 
 
THE TREMBLING train clings to the leaning wall
  Of solid stone; a thousand feet below
Sinks a black gulf; the sky hangs like a pall
  Upon the peaks of everlasting snow.
 
Then of a sudden springs a rim of light,        5
  Curved like a silver sickle. High and higher—
Till the full moon burns on the breast of night,
  And a million firs stand tipped with lucent fire.
