Poetry Corner | Poem #18: Take Me to the Mountains


Because I only feel at home when I can see, and feel, just how small I really am. Everyone needs to go and stand in the shadows of the mountains every once in a while and breathe.

It does wonders to your perspective. 


  1. Hi Beth, Is this your poem? If so would you mind if I print it along with your name on a few mugs I am designing and printing for my handmade market?

    1. Hi Sonja, yes it is! That’s absolutely fine – if you could send me the link when they’re online as well, that would be great! My email address is foreveronalilo@gmail.com if you have any questions.

    Hi, Beth.
    I just found this poem. I’m designing a whole cloth quilt and wonder if I could use your poem on my quilt It would be a wall hanging for personal use only. Thanks for considering

    1. Hi Darcie, thank you for your message. Yes, that’s fine! I would love it if you could email me a picture when you’re finished? My email address is foreveronalilo@gmail.com – thanks!

  3. when I breath the air on the mountain top for the first time, it’s like I was sofocating my whole life.. Climbing mountains is for me a cure for getting lost.. your words are beautiful. well done

    Hi Beth, I just googled mountain poems and I found your wonderful poem. I love it! I’m in the process of making a scrapbook of my trip to Switzerland last year and I’d like to write it in there.

    1. Hi Helen, please go ahead – glad you like the poem!
