Where the world's an icy dream,
Far away from mankind's stains
Where life goes on through ageless veins
And nature reigns supreme.
Take me back to those snowcapped peaks
Among many a wav'ring cloud,
By the gushing crystal creeks
Whence heaven hath kissed Earthly cheeks
Far from the madding crowd.
Take me back to that tranquil place,
The mountains and me, a-twain,
Where admist unpolished grace
I shall deeply savor a snowy embrace
And live to climb again!
