The Mountain by Donna Brock

The mountain frames the sky

As a shadow of an eagle flies by.

With clouds hanging at its edge

A climber proves his courage on its rocky ledge.

This poem is a simple quatrain with no hidden meaning. The meaning is literal. It has a rhyme scheme of AABB. It’s a quatrain, because there are four lines.


I chose a car to represent the poem, because it has four wheels the same way a quatrain has four lines.
