A sage and his disciple stood

Before a foggy mountain trail:

They thought about their lives and all

The mysteries of earth’s dark veil.

“I long to make discoveries,

I long to know the truth of things;

To capture wisdom of my own—

And all the joy such treasure brings.”

A sage and pupil made their way

Into a deep and darkened wood.

They searched and wandered places

Where for years no traveler would.

Who goes there, wandering

About the mists and the rains?

Among the alpine crests

And mountains’ crystal streams?
